August 2010: Dialogue project with armed groups in DRC
Guenter Schoenegg accompanies since June 2010 a project aiming to dialogue with armed groups in Southern Kivu of DRC. The project is implemented by a network of NGO, churches and Human Rights Groups and funded by the German Government. During the coming months the participating civil society actors would like to convince armed groups to disarm. Local leaders and the population are encouraged to des-engage of supporting these groups. The consultant visits Uvira every other month for planning, follow up and evaluation.
