9781622120390: The Untold Story of the Women and Children of the Democratic Republic of the Congo: Analysis of Violence in Eastern DRC

Mwamini traveled around the world due to her father's diplomatic status, but her heart was still in Africa. No place was like the Democratic Republic of Congo, her home. Being very young, she had no interest in politics. All she knew was that she had to leave and go into exile in May 1997 because of a coup d'état. After seven years, Mwamini went back to the DRC and realized that even if the war was officially over, many Congolese were still suffering. She decided to further her education at George Mason University with a master's in Conflict Analysis and Resolution so she could help rebuild her country. As a conflict analysis practitioner, her concern was to understand the Congolese people, their past, present, and the hope they could have in the future. She was determined to solve the conflict because many of those suffering the consequences of the war were her friends and family. Mwamini researched for years and went to remote locations to meet rape victims and child soldiers. Her book starts in 1994 during the genocide in Rwanda, because many victims of the successive wars in the DRC are long-term victims of the genocide. This book relates her journey through the pain and hope of the Congolese women and children. About the Author: Mwamini Thambwe Mwamba Diggs works for the Angie Brooks International Center (ABIC) and Femmes Africa Solidarite (FAS), two nonprofit organizations working on Resolution 1325 of the United Nations. This resolution expresses concern that civilians, particularly women and children, account for the vast majority of those adversely affected by armed conflict.
