The Old is Dying and The New Cannot Be Born (Yet?)

This report is the first systematic review of SSR in the DRC since the Tshisekedi presidency began. It analyzes the general state of affairs of the Congolese security forces in the context of the state of siege that has been declared since May 2021 in the provinces of North Kivu and Ituri.

Roadblocks ‘at the rhythm of the country’

This report analyses the phenomenon of roadblocks in South Kivu, eastern Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC). Departing from a socio-anthropo- logical approach, the report argues that roadblocks are sites where a variety of state and non-state actors interact with each other and with the population.

Barrières Routières « au Rythme du Pays »

Ce rapport porte sur le phénomène des barrières routières au Sud-Kivu dans l’est de la République Démocratique du Congo. S’inspirant d’une approche socio-anthropologique, il soutient que les barrières érigées sur les routes sont des espaces de rencontre entre une diversité d’acteurs étatiques et non-étatiques interagissant entre eux et avec les populations.
