In any case the power that the congo might possess

In any case, the power that the Congo might possess drained out and put them in the rank of the weak countries not just because the country failed to succeed but because the government failed to protect its citizens. A weak country or failed state is a country in which the government cannot or will not deliver essential political goods (public services) to its citizens (Rotberg, 2013). A strong state is the type of state that has control over its domestic politics and also has the power to influence the behavior of others (IRLS210 Lesson Three), which the Democratic Republic of the Congo is far from reaching. The Council on Foreign Relations mentioned an important that the decline of the economy, the deterioration of the infrastructure and the armed forces happened under the administration of Mobutu which increase the weakness of the state and in return deter the country to defend itself. The wound created by those decades of war and wrongdoing have totally ruined the overall production in Congo because they are understanding. The government and the many rebels group have not a strategy about how to secure their resources or how to find a compromise. References: Rotberg, R. (n.d.). Failed and Weak States Defined.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
