  • China’s Geopolitical Economy of Energy Security
    • Authors: Mehdi P. Amineh; Guang Yang
      First page: 9
      Abstract: Source: Volume 17, Issue 1-2, pp 9 - 39China’s transition to an urban-industrial society relies predominantly on its abundant domestic coal supplies and, secondly, on an increase in oil and gas imports. For this reason, China’s strategic investments in the oil and gas industries of resource-rich, energy-exporting countries have vastly increased. Given the high levels of import-dependency, the domestic power-wealth structures in China rely on uninterrupted supplies from beyond state borders. In their search for supply security, major import-dependent actors have two options. One is to reduce dependency by, for instance, higher energy efficiency. Another option is to increase the security of energy imports. This requires improving supply security from resource-rich oil- and gas-exporting countries and regions. The significant growth in the overseas assets and activities of China’s state-led National Oil Companies (NOCs) are crucial to China’s energy supply security. In this study we argue that the transnational activities of Chinese NOCs are part of the country’s so-called ‘statist’, state-led economic globalization, in the course of which some developing economies have become global political powers.In this paper we outline the approach and the conceptual foundations to understand geopolitical economy of energy security in China based on the following section: [1] the unit of analysis in the Political Economy of Energy. [2] Sequential industrialization and its global impacts, [3] Fossil fuel security and resource-scarcity, [4] China’s power structure, state class, and industrialization, [5] Industrialization, lateral pressure, the geopolitical economy and China’s external relations [6] National oil companies: changing the game.

  • Evolution of the East Central Eurasian Hydrocarbon Energy Complex
    • Authors: Robert M. Cutler
      First page: 40
      Abstract: Source: Volume 17, Issue 1-2, pp 40 - 62 This article analyzes the evolution of the East Central Eurasian energy triangle China-Kazakhstan-Russia. It treats in depth the behavior of Chinese national oil companies (NOCs) regarding foreign direct investment (FDI) in Kazakhstan and Russia. The first section sets out the framework of geo-economics in a complexity-science perspective, in particular the key analytical categories of the ‘emergent coherence’ approach, and it defines a ‘hydrocarbon energy complex’ (HEC). The second section analyzes the formation of the East Central Eurasian HEC by examining Chinese energy investment in Kazakhstan and Russia since 1991, using the ‘emergent coherence’ framework as explained. The third section examines the geo-economics of Sino-Russian competition for energy resources in Central Asia, specifically in Kazakhstan and Turkmenistan, over the same timeframe. The fourth section presents conclusions about changes over time in the behavior of Chinese NOCs regarding investment in Kazakhstan and Russia and cooperation with them in the energy sector. The fifth section, the conclusion, summarizes the findings, gives them geopolitical perspective, and concludes on the criteria determining the delimitation of the distinct chronological periods emerging from application of the ‘emergent coherence’ framework.

  • China’s Statist Energy Relations with Turkmenistan and Kazakhstan
    • Authors: Mehdi P. Amineh; Melanie van Driel
      First page: 63
      Abstract: Source: Volume 17, Issue 1-2, pp 63 - 89During the last decade, China’s diplomatic, economic, security and multilateral relations with Resource-Rich Countries (RRCs) in general, and with Central Asia and the Caspian Region (CACR) in particular, created a regional web of complementarity connecting states and societies. This trend reflects a dimension of the “statist globalization” of the Chinese economy. Chinese National Oil Companies (CNOCs) are powerful actors within this emerging network. This comes as no surprise, as China’s domestic power-wealth structure relies on uninterrupted foreign (energy) supplies. The main aim of this paper will be to present a geopolitical economic reflection on China’s post-Cold War energy relations with the RRCs of Turkmenistan and Kazakhstan. Our theoretical framework, which stems from critical geopolitics, tries to conceptualize the geopolitical economic policy tools used by China’s ruling class in RRCs in general and the two cases in particular.

  • Inclusive Development and Climate Change: The Geopolitics of Fossil Fuel
           Risks in Developing Countries
    • Authors: Joyeeta Gupta; Eric Chu
      First page: 90
      Abstract: Source: Volume 17, Issue 1-2, pp 90 - 114This conceptual paper brings together two previously disparate strands of scholarship on climate change and development together with emerging studies of stranded assets. It addresses the question: What are the lessons learnt from this literature for the way developing countries should ‘develop’ in a post-Paris Agreement world' The paper argues that instead of a blind neo-colonial process of rapidly replicating the development paths of already industrialized countries – especially in the context of the fossil fuel sector – developing countries must adopt their own unique development strategies that are more inclusive and transformative. The foregone economic gains from not investing in fossil fuels maybe compensated by the reduced risks of stranded assets and climate change impacts in the future – as well as the reduced risks of climate change impacts on, for example, the agricultural sector – which may facilitate their own unique paths toward inclusive development.

  • Cooperation or Conflicts: The Development of the Photovoltaic Fields in
           China and the Member States
    • Authors: Xiaohua Li
      First page: 115
      Abstract: Source: Volume 17, Issue 1-2, pp 115 - 144China and the EU are important economies and among the greatest green-house gas emitters in the world. Therefore, strengthening cooperation between the EU and China in the renewable field is vital to prevent the earth from getting any warmer. However, the renewable field which include energy equipment, products manufacturing, and operating systems, is a huge market that is worth billions of dollars. Because of their different economic interest, a trade war (anti-dumping and countervailing investigation) broke out between China and EU in the PV industry which includes solar panels, solar glass and solar-grade polysilicon. Could there be cooperation between China and EU Member States in the photovoltaic fields instead of conflict' This paper illustrates the development of PV solar energy and the conflict between EU and China, discusses the main support policies in both the EU and China and their influence on cooperation and conflict, and compares the differences in strengths and weaknesses between the EU and China. This paper draws the conclusion that cooperation between China and the EU in the PV industry could be achieved, and industrial policies should be adjusted in order to avoid or alleviate the conflict.

  • The -Energy Security and Geopolitical Economy
    • Authors: Mehdi P. Amineh; Wina H. J. Crijns-Graus
      First page: 145
      Abstract: Source: Volume 17, Issue 1-2, pp 145 - 187Although energy supply security is an important long-term goal of the EU, member states are in control over external supplies and their domestic energy mix, and an overarching institutional structure is lacking. In this paper, we focus on the availability of oil and gas and the risks of supply disruptions for the EU. The last two decades have been marked by a decrease in fossil fuel production and increasing import dependence. Proven oil and gas reserves in the EU are very limited. Especially in the case of oil the outlook of both global and own EU reserves looks bleak. At the same time, global trends show an increasing demand for energy in the coming decades, concentrated mainly in developing countries, specifically in China. The Persian Gulf area and the Caspian Sea region hold some of the world’s largest oil and gas reserves, and these will make them increasingly significant in global markets. These factors create a setting for the EU of demand- and supply-induced and structural scarcity. The persistence of Arab patrimonial rentier states and societies are a domestic and geopolitical source of instability. These states’ Sovereign Wealth Funds are used by ruling elites to divert assets from socioeconomic development towards individual profit. Emerging Asian economies involved in the ME and the CEA, especially China, will influence the regions’ future geopolitical and geo-economic reality. China relies on resources for domestic development and the resource-rich Middle Eastern countries have long been a destination from which to acquire them.

  • Behind the Mask: Hybrid Identity Work of Indian Women Managers in
           Corporate South Africa (Advance Article)
    • Authors: Nasima M. H. Carrim
      Abstract: Source: Page Count 23There is a dearth of research on how women managers engage in hybrid identity work during their career transitions, and the aim of this study was to fill this gap. Interviews were conducted with 13 Indian women managers in senior and top managerial positions, and the data obtained were analysed using thematic analysis. The narratives indicate that previously disadvantaged groups (Indian women in this case) are caught between subscribing to cultural values and concurrently conforming to organisational norms. Participants’ answers to the question: “Who am I as an Indian female manager'” reveal that during their career ascendency these women engage in a tremendous amount of hybrid identity work and rework related to their self-concept of being an “ideal” Indian female and simultaneously being a “perfect” manager. Nevertheless, in their career transitions to managerial positions, these women are selective in the hybrid identity work they engage in.

  • Forward-Looking Information Disclosure and Corporate Governance: Empirical
           Evidence from Year 2013 Listed Firms in Ghana (Advance Article)
    • Authors: Ben K. Agyei-Mensah
      Abstract: Source: Page Count 29This study investigated the influence of corporate governance on the disclosure of forward looking information by firms listed on the Ghana Stock Exchange. The forward-looking information used in this study were obtained from statements made for management in either the Managing Director or Board Chairman’s reports regarding future operating outcomes.The results of the extent of disclosure of forward looking information, mean of 35%, indicate that most of the firms listed on the Ghana Stock Exchange did not disclose sufficient forward looking information in their annual reports. The low level (35%) of forward looking information disclosure will also make it very difficult for the firms’ stakeholders to determine future performance of the company. In a country where corruption, even within the judiciary, is high one way of hiding corrupt practices is to hide information from the users of the financial reports.The results of the regression analysis indicate that board ownership concentration is the significant variable that explain the level of forward looking information disclosure.

  • Towards a Framework for Understanding the Outcomes of Economic Engagements
           with Africa: A Human Capital Development Perspective
    • Authors: Motolani Agbebi; Jari Stenvall Petri Virtanen
      Abstract: Source: Page Count 26In the last few decades, the world has experienced significant economic and political transformation, which has led to adjustments in economic interaction between countries. However, this new pattern of economic engagement has not attracted adequate investigation from management researchers. This paper aims to fill this gap in the literature by advancing a conceptual framework that can guide researchers towards investigating new patterns of economic engagement across countries. Chinese economic engagement in Africa is used to exemplify how the conceptual framework can be used. The paper concludes by providing directions for research.

  • The Complexity of Contemporary Rural Society: Agricultural
           ‘Betterment’ and Social Realitiesin Semi-arid Zimbabwe
    • Authors: Vusilizwe Thebe
      Abstract: Source: Page Count 19Modernist assumptions have guided rural development interventions in Zimbabwe since the mid-twentieth century. As a result interventions were not firmly grounded on rural socio-economic and physical realities. The aim was not only to create a society of ‘modern’, ‘progressive farmers’ who followed a predetermined agricultural path, but also, the quest for order and modernity was clearly manifest through centralization measures and increased emphasis on prudent land husbandry. This article seeks to demonstrate that these rural development initiatives were ill-suited to the socio-physical realities in some rural societies. Using a case study of a communal area in semi-arid north-western Zimbabwe, it stresses the importance of the physical conditions, the socio-economic dynamics and the particular livelihood trajectories of rural households. It concludes that, even if the state in Zimbabwe was to succeed in imposing an agrarian order driven by these models, such a policy was more likely to end in dismal failure.

  • Preparedness and Economic Integration in Africa – A Case with
           Reference to (Advance Article)
    • Authors: Faisal Ahmed
      Abstract: Source: Page Count 50The ideas of governance and African integration and the inter-linkages between them are consistently defining policy-making in Africa. This paper analyses the Lagos Plan of Action and makes an assessment of various sub-regional integration pursuits within Africa, which is integral to the African Peer Review Mechanism (APRM). The paper also analyses the business environment and economic governance in African sub-regions by assessing their participation in international trade and investment flows, besides discussing the trade-related institutional frameworks in Africa. Moreover, the paper analyses few indigenous best practices in the areas of infrastructural development, trade facilitation, competition regime, and, agricultural development, among others and also reflects on the pertinent concerns. It calls for a broad-based multi-stakeholder participation to help enhance Africa’s preparedness and global outreach.

  • Expatriates Go, Let Us Grow
    • Authors: Deepanjana Varshney
      Abstract: Source: Page Count 31The employment situation in Saudi Arabia and the dynamics of the labor market are the results of a series of decisions to grow the economy fast after the discovery of oil. Since the locals were not equipped and prepared with the required knowledge and expertise, to build up the nascent economy at rapid speed during that phase, there was a massive inflow of expatriates. The current research highlights the changing labor market in Saudi Arabia, unemployment among locals, remedial policies framed by the government, their drawbacks, and effect on the overall economy. The key antecedents are the preference of Saudi youth for the Public sector, unemployment, the role of the Education System, the private sector, the Nitaqat (job localization) system and expatriate factor. Finally, I propose a viable human capital development model that suggests a collaborative role for expatriates and employability enhancement programs for sustainable economic and social development.
