, 8:00am –
Security Council Report, New York

On June 8th, the SSRC’s Understanding Violent Conflict Program organized a Central Africa Policy Forum session at the Security Council Report on the electoral process in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. This invitation-only session brought together academics, NGOs, UN country missions, and UN agencies and departments in a discussion led by the president and secretary general of the National Episcopal Conference of Congo (CENCO). CENCO successfully facilitated the December 31, 2016 Saint-Sylvestre agreement, which aims to pave the way for DRC's first peaceful democratic transfer of power through the express will of the Congolese people. The election is currently scheduled for December 23, 2018.
