Rich Countries, Poor Nations, and Global Economic Order

The report explores the multifaceted landscape of the mining industry in the Democratic Republic of Congo, highlighting the paradox of abundant mineral resources combined with important poverty and underdevelopment among the population. It traces the historical and contemporary influences on the industry, including colonial legacies and global economic doctrines, revealing systemic challenges that perpetuate disparities. The report explores human rights violations such as labour exploitation, child labour, and displacement of indigenous communities, underscoring the urgent need for equitable practices, transparency, and anti-corruption efforts. Through the lens of development theories like the Frank Metropolis and its Satellite Model, it elucidates structural inequalities perpetuated by external forces, advocating for a redefined narrative centred on inclusive development and autonomy for the Congolese people.

OUR GOALS

 
Sensibiliser

Raise awareness

Social networks, newsletters, cultural recommendations and website are our main tools to raise awareness. In order to promote human rights and their respect, we also propose to intervene in schools and companies.

Inform

Through a wide range of content that ensures accessibility for all, we provide information on various human rights issues. For instance, every Friday, you can find a summary of their news on our Instagram.

Propose

Report writing forms the basis of our proposals to parliamentarians. We seek to influence political decision-makers so that they become aware of and improve the current status of human rights in the world.
