O petróleo como elo entre o Sudão do Sul e a China

André Valente Maia, Silvia Ferabolli

Resumo


Esse artigo objetiva investigar a evolução das relações entre o Sudão do Sul e a China tendo como fio condutor a triangulação complexa entre o desenvolvimento da indústria petrolífera no Sudão, o processo de independência sul-sudanês e os interesses energéticos chineses na região. Para atingir tais objetivos, inicialmente, serão apresentados e discutidos os pressupostos da teoria da “Fragilidade Estatal”, sobre os quais se assenta esse artigo. Em seguida, serão descritas e analisadas as condições do desenvolvimento do setor petrolífero no Sudão, o envolvimento da China no processo de independência do Sudão do Sul, e seu papel decisivo para que os líderes do movimento de independência se mantivessem no poder no pós-2011. Finalmente, na conclusão, será discutido o papel das commodities estratégicas e da China na consolidação estatal de novos Estados africanos. 

Palavras-chave
