The Landscape of Armed Groups in the Eastern Congo


Stearns, Jason; Vogel, Christoph (2015). The Landscape of Armed Groups in the Eastern Congo. New York: Congo Research Group at New York University, CIC.

Abstract

Nineteen years after the beginning of the Congo wars, armed conflict still affects millions in the east of the country. This essay by CRG director Jason Stearns and our senior fellow Christoph Vogel accompanies a map of armed groups, compiled by researchers across North and South Kivu, in which we catalogue over seventy groups. This is far from a static picture, and we highlight key shifts that have emerged over the past two years: a decline of regional involvement, a fragmentation of armed groups, and a modest drop in the political manipulation of armed groups.
