A State Affair: Privatising Congo’s Copper Sector

Last week The Carter Center published the first part of “A State Affair: Privatizing Congo’s Copper Sector”, a comprehensive report on the contractual and financial practices of the Democratic Republic of Congo’s state-owned mining company, Gécamines, and its most important investment partners. The report can be found here


The Carter Center, in partnership with Emory University, is guided by a fundamental commitment to human rights and the alleviation of human suffering. It seeks to prevent and resolve conflicts, enhance freedom and democracy, and improve health. Its website can be found here.


Marietta Cauchi, co-head of the ISLP Media Law Working Group, worked for the last two years on a pre-publication review of the report. We really appreciate her hard work on this project!
