Who and what makes or breaks the future of the Great Lakes region? Does the race for resources have the region in a deadlock? Is aid effective where governments seem to fail? And what are the odds for enduring peace? During this day you will be granted a look behind the façade, gain insights into this complex reality and meet organisations and institutes active in the region.
The border region of Burundi, Rwanda and the Democratic Republic Congo has grown into a warzone. Local, national and international interests are at stake in a conflict where lawlessness seems to prevail, often at the expense of the local population. These struggles threaten the development of the Great Lakes region, but is there hope for a better future? Is it possible to let justice prevail? Can NGOs and Belgian policy make a difference?
You are invited to join our quest for answers in a series of workshops, lectures and debates.
