The Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) is home to risky contradictions: despite being very “rich” in natural resources, it remains consistently “poor” in solid and legitimate state structures. Europe conducts numerous efforts to strengthen Congolese social and economic infrastructures, offering security and governance support alongside more traditional development projects. But its actions suffer from situational ignorance, fragmentation, and policy frailty. A coherent and strategic (international) approach is urgently needed to provide valuable impetus to the most pressing Congolese needs.
