This book is a collection of Policy Briefs on the issue of reconstructing economic governance in resourcerich African countries. This is the first book that covers this particular issue. Many researches have been undertaken on the causes of conflict and violence in resourcerich African countries, but the particular point in this book is how to manage the economic affairs in these countries for the benefit of the people and on a longterm and sustainable basis. The term good economic governance is used for this type of management, and we have applied the concept to a number of African countries that are richly endowed with natural resources and have suffered from various forms and intensities of conflict.
