Land, power and identity

Roots of violent conflict in eastern DRC

This study examines access to, use of and management of land and its links with the root causes of conflict in the two Kivu provinces and Ituri in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). The study’s aim is to identify key gaps in the international community’s understanding of land issues in eastern DRC, as well as gaps in the kinds of interventions that are being conducted at the current time (2009-2010).
