Here’s a good blog about the Democratic Republic of Congo, formerly known as Zaire, the massive country at the heart of Africa that has been in the news for huge and sometimes controversial resource and infrastructure deals with China:
Here are search results for posts on Congo Siasa that mention China, below is the blogger’s self description:
I have been working on the conflict in the DR Congo for the past eight years, most recently as the Coordinator of the United Nations Group of Experts on the Congo (2008). I have also worked for Heritiers de la Justice, a local human rights NGO (2001), the UN peacekeeping mission MONUC (2002-2004) and the International Crisis Group (2005-2007). A book I wrote on the conflict, Dancing in the Glory of Monsters, is due to be published soon. I am currently obtaining my PhD at Yale University.
