UK opens up to Sudanese oil business, just as the country may be headed back to war in 2011

By Avery Hancock

Abstract

Tony Blair, Gordon Brown, David Cameron, and a host of politicians from all over the UK political spectrum have expressed outrage at the atrocities committed in the Darfur region of Sudan. But further out of the public eye is the very real threat that the country’s fragile peace agreement between the North and South could unravel into war- largely over division of natural resource wealth. Avery Hancock questions whether the UK should encourage investment in the country’s oil sector when the stakes are so high
