Surexploitation et Injustice contre les Creuseurs Artisanaux dans la Chaine d’Approvionnement du Cobalt Congolais

Ce rapport de recherche se traite deux questions fondamentales et interconnectées auxquelles est confronté l’exploitation du cobalt par les mineurs artisanaux en Republique Democratique  du Congo (RDC). La première question est de savoir pourquoi, malgré une législation minière progressive sur l’exploitation minière artisanale (peut-être l’un des meilleurs sur le continent), la RDC ne parvient toujours pas à mettre de l’ordre dans ce secteur. La deuxième question, plus importante, est de savoir pourquoi, bien qu’ils produisent 20 pour cent de la production totale du pays, les mineurs artisanaux et les communautés locales ne tirent pas suffisamment d’avantages de l’exploitation du cobalt?
