The report, "Leveraging Reform: Fighting Corruption in Post-Election DR Congo," by Sarah Gardiner and Sasha Lezhnev, urges the United States, European Union, and African Union to adopt a two-track approach:

 Engage with President Tshisekedi in support of anti-corruption, transparency, and accountability reforms on the one hand, and Employ robust financial pressure to hold corrupt actors accountable and leverage those reforms on the other hand.

Without this pressure from both outside and within Congo, corrupt officials who have a vested interest in perpetuating a kleptocratic state will block reform measures.
