Field research to Democratic Republic of Congo

DRC fieldwork

Our Consortium partners from Royal Danish Defence College have in February conducted a field research to Democratic Republic of Congo as part of the WP3. Field trip was organized in order to gather, analyze and scrutinize the nature, impact and effectiveness of the four key EU initiatives in DR Congo, namely operation Artemis in 2003; the EUFOR deployment in 2006, the EUPOL 2003-2014 and finally the EUSEC program from 2005-2016.

Thomas Mandrup, RDDC, has interviewed various experts, coming from MONUC, OCHA, Pakistan Army, FARDC battalion, as well as governmental and nongovernmental, national and international institutions, academics, and civilians.
