The Impact of Aid on Conflict: A Case Study of How Foreign Aid to Rwanda and Uganda Affects the DRC Conflict

Abstract:

This study examines the impact of aid on conflict. It presents a case study of how foreign aid given to Rwanda and Uganda by Western Powers is affecting the conflict in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). By examining the link between aid and conflict in the DRC, the study aims to portray how the Global North uses proxies to exacerbate conflicts in the Global South under the guise of foreign aid. The research therefore delves into the history of DRC's conflict in detail dating back to the pre-colonial era owing to the fact that the country has been engaged in one of the longest wars ever witnessed worldwide. This then brings out the underlying causes of the ndle _,,Vio-1that seems to be escalating ng. The study therefore relies on qualitative research analysis; the data has been collected from scholarly books and articles, published reports and internet sources. It builds on Economist Dambisa Moyo's argument that aid is not working in Africa and has only sought to under-develop the continent; the unrelenting conflict in the DRC is proof of this statement.
