RVI Usalama Project: First reports launched

On 2 November 2012, the RVI launched the first of a series of reports on the M23 and other armed groups in the eastern Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), part of RVI’s Usalama Project on armed groups in the eastern Congo. The report, entitled From CNDP to M23: The Evolution of an Armed Movement in the Eastern Congo, explores the roots of the latest rebellion, as well as the implications of the rebellion for the DRC’s eastern neighbours, Rwanda and Uganda, who have been accused of aiding and abetting the M23. A second report, North Kivu: The Background to Conflict in North Kivu Province of the Eastern Congo, which describes the historical context of the current conflict in greater detail, is also available for free download.
