The Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), the third largest country in Africa, is making significant strides to extricate itself from one of the bloodiest wars in the continent’s history, which resulted in millions of deaths. Focusing on the DRC’s turnaround as well as its considerable stabilization and reconstruction challenges, Postconflict Economics in Sub-Saharan Africa draws lessons for postconflict countries worldwide. The IMF team leader and book’s editor, Jean A.P. Clement, and three contributing authors, Bernardin Akitoby, Ragnar Gudmundsson, and Charles Amo Yartey, spoke with Jacqueline Irving of the IMF Survey about what can be learned from the DRC’s experience.
