Congo Masquerade

The Political Culture of Aid Inefficiency and Reform Failure


Congo Masquerade is about mismanagement, hypocrisy and powerlessness in what has proved to be one of Africas most troublesome and volatile states. In this scathing study of catastrophic aid inefficiency, Trefon evaluates the imported template of reforms pieced together to introduce democracy and improve the wellbeing of the Congolese. He demonstrates that it has been an almost unmitigated failure due to the ingrained political culture of corruption amongst the Congolese elite, abetted by the complicity and incompetence of international partners. Startling and provocative, Congo Masquerade offers a critical examination of why aid is not helping the Congo.
