This first conversation will feature content and themes from a paper written by Arif Bulkan and Alissa Trotz about a year ago, assessing Guyana’s recent election impasse in the context of its racially divisive politics and examining the role of both commodity exports and multinational corporations in amplifying internal tensions, divisions and competition for power and resources.

The paper can be read here: Oil Fuels Guyana’s Internecine Conflict | Current History | University of California Press (ucpress.edu)

Dr Bulkan and Professor Trotz will discuss some of the themes raised with Sara Bharrat and Derwayne Wills.  Arif Bulkan is a senior lecturer in the Faculty of Law at the St. Augustine campus of the University of the West Indies. Alissa Trotz is a professor of Caribbean studies and director of women and gender studies at the University of Toronto. Sara Bharrat is a student practitioner of Electoral Policy and Administration and a Democracy and Governance Professional with the Democracy Resource Centre and the International Republican Institute.

    Where there is oil, there is always trouble. Someone else always wants to control it. Good luck

    “Oil has emerged as the new sugar, and the political elites serve as managers on behalf of international capital. This is Guyana’s tragedy: historically oppressed peoples direct their hostility at each other while neo-imperial powers hide in plain sight and reap the country’s wealth.”

    Let’s hope that a certain demographic of Guyanese don’t become barbaric and limb-chopping Saudis who mistreat Blacks.
