From workshop on gender violence in Goma, Eastern DRC, December 2009 (c) REDRESS

Democratic Republic of Congo

REDRESS' work in Democratic Republic of Congo has mainly focused on efforts to seek justice for the horrific crimes that have taken place in the context of the conflict in the east of the country. It is working with local civil society groups to ensure that the International Criminal Court proceedings against a number of rebel leaders are accessible and meaningful to victims, and that victims have the ability to express their views and concerns during the proceedings. REDRESS is also working to ensure that victims have access to meaningful reparations for the harm they suffered.
