Abstract [en]

This work will explain the extent of democracy in the Democratic Republic Kongo, and in order to answer this complex question, the methodology of case study has been implemented and electoral democracy as well as polyarchy as theories. The purpose of this research has been to explain the extent of democracy in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, and if there is a possible way to bring the democracy forward. Joseph Kabilas time in power has been analyzed by using my theories in order to arrive at the conclusions. The conclusions address the obstacles the country’s democratization process has encounterd in terms of lack of freedom of expression and lack of influence in the political climate. There is also a solution to the problem presented in my conclusions. The Democratic Republic of the Congo was pressured by western countries to begin a democratization process in the early 1990s in order to retain the assistance recieved from West, but despite all promises this has not resulted in any positive result, which have led to a delayed democraization process. It can be noted that the road to a democratic Congo is still very long, altough some things may have improved over time, and the result is still unchanged: Democratic Republic of Congo is not democratic.
