Recent scholarship has provided important evidence that we need to move ‘beyond minerals’. But in the rush to distance recent scholarship with earlier work on Congo’s single mineral story, we have stepped a bit too far as we still have much to learn about how different natural resources and violence are linked in the Congo. This blog calls attention to new site(ings) of exploitation, and it is these sites of exploitation that disrupt Congo’s most important economy – the farming economy.
