(Union Paysanne pour le Développement Intégral Representative 2014) T hese statements reflect some important sentiments of those who have experienced war in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and the Great Lakes since the 1990s.1 They imply an interpretation of the conflict as stemming from several overlapping economic and political issues that cannot be reduced to a military issue, a problem of

Still, the patterns of coercion and extraction that have followed from the 20 years of conflict, with the different state-making and peacebuilding processes, determine the conditions for the

Persons sorted into the first category are to be expelled to the country where they were registered as having entered Europe, as defined by the Dublin system (currently Dublin III, officially called EU Regulation 604/2013). The second category, ‘manifestly unfounded’, means that protection is denied.
