Briefly describe how the 2018 HRW Report assesses the situation in your country of choice.
Apply Collier’s theory on development trap to the country of your choice. If you chose Somalia, think about the conflict trap, if you chose the DRC talk about the natural resource trap. Answer the following question:
Do you think that Collier’s concept of traps is helpful in explaining why Somalia/the DRC is struggling to overcome poverty and to increase its economic development? If yes, why? If not, what do you think is missing? Develop an argument!
Draw on what you learned in the readings. You are also encouraged to bring in additional information on your country of choice, when making your argument. Tip: You can find links to additional material in this week’s PowerPoint presentation.
