Learning from past failures: The DRC crisis in perspective

The panel discussion on the historical roots of the present-day Congolese crisis was timed to coincide with the release of the first two French RVI Usalama Project reports. Organised by the Observatoire de l’Afrique and RVI, the discussion was chaired by Koen Vlassenroot and saw talks by Stephen van Damme from Oxfam and Jason Stearns, director of RVI’s Usalama Project.
