LSE report on mining in Eastern Congo

April 10, 2009

The Crisis States research centre at the London School of Economics (LSE) has just released a report on mining in Eastern Congo. The report mainly argues that banning or disrupting the regional trade in minerals from Eastern DR Congo would be counterproductive, as it would “put up to one million livelihoods at risk and perpetuate insecurity”.

You can download the full report here.

    Interesting. I posted on my blog, a response to a piece on ForeignPolicy Mag about Congo, that touches on similar themes. I would appreciate your comments.
