THE GIC
NETWORK

War and violent conflict are often presented as anarchic, with the most basic governance activities abolished and all services lacking. Our academic network ‘governance in conflict’ wants to challenge this popular assumption and focus explicitly on the role of governance in and during conflict.

La plaine de la Ruzizi

Depuis plus de deux décennies, la plaine de la Ruzizi (province du Sud-Kivu) ne cesse d’être le théâtre de conflits et de violences. Au fil du temps, les modèles et la dynamique des conflits et de la violence ont considérablement évolué. Si la dynamique des conflits était autrefois liée principalement à la contestation du pouvoir coutumier, souvent présentée sous la forme d’un conflit intercommunautaire, ces dynamiques ont évoluées.
