Abstract:This article demonstrates that the constitutional principle of permanent state sovereignty over natural resources has been enshrined in the Congolese legal system as an antidote to the economic model inherited from colonisation. The authors argue that in view of its scope, it can offer effective protection to natural resources in the Democratic Republic of Congo provided certain conditions are met. These include effective law enforcement, effective control of natural resource exploitation activities, transparency in the collection and equitable redistribution of revenues from extractive industries, and the exercise of the right to compensation in the event of spoliation.
