World Bank Says Congo's Transition from Conflict Exemplary, Government Now Democratic and Legitimate

You may have heard that the World Bank just published a new report on #DRC predicting that growth will average seven percent for the next couple of years. The Bank says it is the first comprehensive economic analysis for the country in more than twenty-five years; it is certainly an impressive-looking document. I am keen to read the entire manuscript, but the first sentence brought me up short. In fact, I thought at first I must have clicked on the wrong country document. Take a look for yourself:

This book pulls together an impressive body of research on the exemplary transition of a country from a state of conflict to a postconflict situation, and from there toward becoming a country with legitimate institutions created by free, democratic, and transparent elections.
