Marriage, Zoe (2012) 'The Case of the FDLR in Congo: A Facade of Collaboration?' In: Giustozzi, Antonio, (ed.), Post-Conflict Disarmament, Demobilization and Reintegration: bringing state-building back in. London: Ashgate, pp. 87-98.
Demobilisation, disarmament and reintegration programmes have featured prominently in peace processes in the Democratic Republic of Congo and more recently have taken place alongside activities associated with state-building. Ten years on from the signing of the Lusaka Agreement on 10 July 1999, national, regional and international attention is focused on demobilising the Democratic Forces for the Liberation of Rwanda (FDLR), the last major armed group operating in the Kivus. This chapter argues, though, that the policy and implementation of these operations overlooks key political processes in their approach to demobilising the force. Moreover, while the FDLR is part of the cause of the insecurity in the Kivus, it is itself a product of a much wider framework of insecurity.
