Type: Members Events

As much of eastern Congo remains under the control of armed insurgencies and militia groups, the speakers will discuss the regional dynamics of this conflict and explore whether the current peace talks between the government of the DRC and the M23 rebel group are likely to succeed. Reflecting on lessons learned from the international community's past failures to stem conflict in the country, they will consider what options are available for outside parties to bring about a lasting solution.
