Drawing on three in-depth case studies of oil-rich countries, Bayulgen demonstrates that the link between democratization and FDI is nonlinear: both authoritarian regimes and consolidated democracies have political institutions that can offer attractive, though different, policies for investors; hybrid regimes have a much more difficult time doing so.
1. Introduction; 2. Political risks in oil investments: a history of antagonistic interdependence; 3. With or without democracy?: the political economy of FDI; 4. Curse or blessing?: effects of FDI on development; 5. Azerbaijan: one-stop shopping; 6. Russia: two-steps forward, one-step back; 7. Norway: icon of stability; 8. Beyond three cases and oil; 9. Conclusion.
