Title:Some Dimensions of Neighbour-State Relations in the Nile Valley
Author:Woodward, Peter
Periodical:Sudan Notes and Records
Geographic terms:Egypt
Subjects:foreign policy
Politics and Government

Abstract:While in the past it may have been generally accepted that economic dependence provided most of the explanation required for African policy making, there is a case for saying that neighbour-state relations, in the Nile Valley (meaning essentially Egypt and the Sudan, and at most adding Uganda) at least, are of consequence for both the political and the economic development of the countries of the region in the future. This paper tries to indicate and briefly explores the several dimensions of neigbour-state relations: Borders - Shared economic resources - Shared political instability - Domestic instability and neighbour-state intervention - Domestic instability, international tension and neigbour-state relations - Conclusions.
