Congo, twist and turns of democracy – 2011


Congo, les méandres de la démocratie

The film shows an approach of democracy through the building of a consultation process in the Republic of Congo, an experience the European Union, the Republic of congo and France have launched together. It aims at reimpowering ‘civil society’, at finding democracy and ending social conflicts after ten years of civil wars. It brings a new conception of North/South relationships, with the concept of participation replacing dependency. But what is actually going on? How to establish democratic « tools » in a non democratic country?
