The Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) has a long history of violent conflict and political crises involving national, regional and non-state actors. The UN has been actively involved in the DRC since 1999 when establishing the United Nations Organization Mission in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (MONUC), which was in 2010 renamed the UN Organization Stabilization Mission in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (MONUSCO) to reflect new phase reached in the country. In 2018, the DRC had its first peaceful handover of power after an election, however, violent conflicts are still ongoing in parts of the country, and more than a hundred armed groups are operating in the country’s eastern region. 

On this page, you will find the 2019 EPON study of MONUSCO, and other related EPON partner studies of peacebuilding and stabilization initiatives in the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
