The book presents a critical analysis of how oil and gas exploitation
with huge negative impacts on environment, development and human
security, has constructed a disturbing terrain of civil agitation,
state repression, violent conflicts and insecurity. Drawing on the
nature and content of public policy and corporate social
responsibility conceptions and practices, the book interrogates the
conflicts‘ communal and regional dimensions in terms of causality,
dynamics and interventions. In presenting strategies and mechanisms
for resolving the diverse dimensions of the resource conflicts, the
book charts the way towards sustainable development and conflict
transformation; two issues which would remain germane to the resource
conflict resolution discourse in the specific case of the Niger Delta
and beyond.
