Jesse Salah Ovadia

Lecturer in International Political Economy, Newcastle University

I lecture in international and comparative political economy, African politics and international development. My current research is about the political economy of oil and development in the Gulf of Guinea of Africa. It focuses on Angola and Nigeria, local content policies and their role in linking oil extraction to industrial development and economic growth in the non-oil economy. I write about the changed domestic and international context for embracing state-led approaches to development through natural resources and questions of imperialism, capitalist development through oil, local/community participation, and natural resource governance.
