Abstract

The ongoing conflict in the Democratic Republic of Congo has claimed over 5 million lives since 1998, making it the deadliest conflict worldwide since World War 2. On the 50th anniversary of the DRC’s independence, Avery Hancock explores how British companies, and thereby consumers, may be fuelling the conflict, and what the UK government is (or is not) doing about it.
