Title
Customs reforms in eastern Congo (DRC) : between norms and practices
Author
Abstract
This paper attempts to explain how importers, clearance agents and customs officers respond to ongoing customs administration reforms in the DRC. Customs reforms include computerization, single desk system and pre-shipment inspection. The DRC case reveals that the reforms as norms are indeed implemented, but they have not eradicated some mispractices. Actors involved adapt their practices within the framework of the reforms.
