This project provides the first comparative historical analysis – local, national and transnational - of the Central African copperbelt, a globally strategic mineral region central to the history of two nation-states (Zambia and Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC)) and wider debates about the role of mineral wealth in development. The project is led by Dr Miles Larmer in Oxford and is funded by the ERC under the European Union's Horizon 2020 programme.
