Democracy and Governance Assessment

Project Duration: 
November, 2007 - December, 2007

Working with ARD, DI conducted a democracy and governance assessment in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. The DI-ARD team conducted fieldwork in Kinshasa and elsewhere in the country. The team cited massive government corruption and a weak judicial system as the core democratization problems facing the DRC. It recommended improved governance, especially better government management, and a strengthened judicial system as means to tackle corruption and end impunity.
