BUTLER, A.. Resource nationalism and the African National Congress. J. S. Afr. Inst. Min. Metall. [online]. 2013, vol.113, n.1, pp.11-20. ISSN 2411-9717.

This paper explains the politics of mine nationalization in contemporary South Africa. Nationalization and privatization typically occur in the oil, mineral resources, and state utilities sectors, and they tend to follow one another in a long-term cyclical pattern. The paper explains why the current international environment has encouraged demands for nationalization and other forms of 'resource nationalism' in the South African minerals sector. It goes on to describe how the resurgence of resource nationalism has been influenced by internal factional politics in the African National Congress. It concludes that nationalization is unlikely to be the outcome of current policy deliberations within the ANC.

Palabras clave : Resource nationalism; nationalization; mineral policy; South Africa.
