The Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), the third largest country in Africa, is making significant strides to extricate itself from one of the bloodiest wars in the continent's history, which resulted in millions of deaths. Focusing on the DRC's turnaround as well as its considerable stabilization and reconstruction challenges, "Postconflict Economics in Sub-Saharan Africa" draws lessons for postconflict countries worldwide.
Join the authors for a lively discussion about the challenges facing postconflict economies.
