Report of Delàs Center and the ECP: Democratic Republic of Congo: Comprehensive review of 20 years of war

This study co-conducted by Escola de Cultura de Pau (School of Peace Culture) and Centre Delas d’estudis per la Pau (Delàs Study Center for Peace), aims to identify the roots and causes of the conflict suffered by the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and the main active armed actors directly involved in it. The report also presents an analysis of the arms race in the region, including data analysis on exports of defense material from the EU to the DRC, as of transfers and diversions of arms to the DRC and neighboring countries. Militarism in the country is subject of evaluation in this report in relation with military spending. In addition, the study integrates an analysis of the political economy of war, the role of natural resources and the gender dimension within the conflict.
