Abstract

This paper’s primary contribution is to extend the Resource Based View (RBV) of the firm to incorporate the role of the state, including its ability to deploy resources and capabilities and provide strategic intent for selected firms. Adopting a case study of the role of the Indian State in seeking energy resources in Africa, this paper analyzes how the Indian state is managing its new institutional strategy in the midst of inter-state competition for energy resources in the African continent. Evidence is drawn from in-depth interviews with elite actors within the Indian state as well as within the Kenyan state. The qualitative analysis allows the development of a new framework the Resource Based View of the State (RBS)
