Organisation: Egmont Institute, EurAc, Open Society European Policy Institute
In the current pre-electoral deadlock, political and security tensions are on the rise in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC). Worrying attempts to undermine democratic change, shrinking democratic space and a dramatic increase in human rights violations pose an acute threat to a credible and peaceful transfer of power in the country. This public conference will discuss the current situation on the ground and explore the role and responsibility of the EU in supporting a credible democratic process and helping prevent an escalation of violence and abuse in the DRC.
