The DRC and the CAR, one might think these two countries are forgotten causes since the achievement of a lasting solution seems elusive. However, through MONUSCO and MINUSCA, the United Nations’ main body in charge of maintaining international peace and security continues to deploy a considerable amount of human resource, material, and financial terms to restore peace in these two countries.
The speaker will first assess the countries situation in terms of the latest developments, an assessment of the action of the two peacekeeping operations taking various Peace Agreements into account, and the expectations of the populations. Then we will identify the various constraints to the effectiveness of the action of peace mission’s internal and external constraints.
The issue of peacekeeping operations might be assessed in a broader perspective: preventing conflicts and not just acting in reaction to conflicts.
Ultimately, Africa should take its destiny by developing and strengthening its capacities. To operationalize tools at its disposal, for instance, the peace and security architecture and the governance architecture in Africa. The Extraordinary Summit of DecembRegiter herer 5, 2020, could be an opportunity to make more effective the commitment of States to implement the roadmap on silencing the Guns.
