Countries such as the Democratic Republic of the Congo have been caught in the midst of some of the bloodiest contemporary armed conflicts, partly perpetuated by the struggle over resource-rich territories.

This event is part of a Chatham House project examining the regulation of conflict minerals in the Great Lakes region of Africa. A paper on the topic, written by Louise Arimatsu and Hemi Mistry, will be launched at the event.
