Reconstructing the Congo
Vol.24 No.74 (December 1997), pp591-600
This follow-up to ‘The Congo is Back!’ in the June issue of ROAPE (No. 72) focuses on the ADFL's (Alliance of Democratic Forces for the Liberation of the Congo) economic project and plans for reconstruction; Western and African governmental and private sector responses to the Congo's economic prospects; how Kabila's ongoing dispute with the UN over human rights abuses during the ADFL advance may affect these; and how civil society is faring in the new period.
