Marriage, Zoe (2010) 'Many conflicts, one peace: Congo’s economy and global security.' In: Padayachee, Vichnu, (ed.), The Political Economy of Africa. Abingdon: Routledge, pp. 301-316.
The Democratic Republic of Congo has a long history of violence, much of it sustained from outside the country for the economic gain of various actors. Since the turn of the twenty-first century, northern donors have used interventionist policies to address this violence, and some of it has been brought to a close. This chapter traces how global security concerns have shaped the Congolese economy in the past. It then places the demobilisation and democratisation of 2002-6 in their economic and security context and explores the outcomes for the Congolese economy alongside what kind of peace has been agreed and what violence it accommodates.
