The main purpose of the research is to answer the question whether Uganda as a second generation petro-state can avoid oil resource curse phenomenon. Research hypothesis states that African countries where oil has been discovered in recent years operate in different international arena and with dissimilar domestic factors compared to countries that after decolonisation were based on monoculture economy. Consequently, the discovery of oil resources in certain countries of Sub-Saharan Africa does not entail occurrence of oil resource curse phenomenon.
