On July 21, the Project on Leadership and Building State Capacity hosted the first of two consultations on the Democratic Republic of the Congo as part of a series devoted to fragile and failed states.
The second occasional paper of the series is based on a public forum that took place on June 20, 2006, at the Wilson Center entitled "Catalytic Initiatives for Country Level Peace-building Strategies: What Are They Accomplishing?" Michael Lund, Consulting Program Manager to the Project on Leadership and Building State Capacity and Senior Specialist for Conflict and Peacebuilding at Management Systems International Inc. (MSI), moderated the session. The publication was compiled and edited by Georgina Petrosky and Sarah Cussen of the Leadership Project and Project Intern Jaclyn Burger.
