Cake-sharing strategies

January 20, 2009

A friend just informed me about a very interesting article appeared last month in The New York Times. The text is signed by Herman J. Cohen, the US assistant secretary of state for Africa from 1989 to 1993. Cohen proposes a  realistic economic solution to the conflict (supported by many): basically, sharing the cake among all actors involved.

Congolese activists have already replied to this approach, considering it as the international acceptance of a territorial aggression.

Meanwhile, the French president, Nicolas Sarkozy, recently made public France´s diplomatic plans in the region, interestingly in line with the the views expressed by Cohen.
