Belgique-Zaïre : la crise de la maturité



From the independence (1960), the relations between Zaïre and Belgium have known many difficulties. The most serious crisis took place from november 1988 to july 1989 (march 1990). A lot of questions were brought up: cooperation, debt, human rights. .. The agreement of Rabat provides for the future.
Behind these events, it is possible to find some explanations of the crises : the past (relations colony-colonizing nation), the nature of power (differences between democracy and personal power) and the international surroundings.
