What Next for the DRC? Armed Groups, Elections and International Participants

Friday, 16 January 2015 - 12:00pm to 1:30pm

The Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) has long been mired in a perpetual cycle of violence, disorder and corruption. However, while significant obstacles to the DRC’s transition to stability and democracy still remain, a number of converging factors have created a window of opportunity for positive change to emerge.

This event will launch the Chatham House research paper "Beyond Crisis in the DRC: The Dilemmas of International Engagement and Sustainable Change."

Participants:
Ben Shepherd, Associate Fellow, Africa
Brooke Lauten, Protection & Advocacy Adviser for DRC, Norwegian Refugee Council
Chair: Dr Muzong Kodi, Associate Fellow, Africa Programme, Chatham House
