WEBCAST | Peacebuilding in the Democratic Republic of the Congo: Revisiting the Tool Kit

For the last two decades, the United Nations (UN) has been present in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC). Yet, despite the deployment of the world’s largest UN peacekeeping mission, MONUSCO,   devastating conflicts that have killed and displaced millions have continued—calling into question the efficacy of UN peacekeeping efforts and other peacebuilding measures. This event will broaden the conversation, analyzing not just the challenges faced by the UN peacekeeping mission but also assessing the larger, multifaceted peacebuilding efforts in the DRC.

The speakers will consider the successes and failures of these efforts, and offer recommendations for how the UN, international partners, and other stakeholders and peacebuilders can update their “tool kits” to better meet the context and needs of the DRC.

The SVNP is a continent-wide network of African policy, research and academic organizations that works with the Wilson Center’s Africa Program to bring African knowledge and perspectives to U.S., African, and international policy on peacebuilding in Africa. Established in 2011 and supported by the generous financial support of the Carnegie Corporation of New York, the project provides avenues for African researchers and practitioners to engage with, inform, and exchange analyses and perspectives with U.S., African, and international policymakers in order to develop the most appropriate, cohesive, and inclusive policy frameworks and approaches to achieving sustainable peace in Africa.
