The Clash of Corporate Responsibility and Asian Oil Security: India’s National Oil Company in Sudan

Synopsis:

The 1990s witnessed a surge in international campaigning for corporations to improve their social and environmental impacts. The operations of extractives companies in resource-rich but impoverished, conflict-affected countries often came under fire. In Sudan, while western oil companies were leaving in face of activist campaigns condemning their activities due to the detrimental influence oil development on a long-standing civil war, Asian national oil companies were expanding their presence. Less under the spotlight and driven by the ever-rising demands for natural resources, such companies appear to be less amenable to civil society pressures. Has Asian oil security become a counter-weight to the corporate responsibility agenda? This seminar tackles this question by exploring the case of India’s national oil company’s presence in Sudan.
