In a number of conflict regions, sanctions and due diligence regimes remain unable to prevent natural resources from fueling armed conflict. In the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and elsewhere, criminal networks and elites extort an ever-growing share of mining profits at the expense of local communities. Against this backdrop, Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung Geneva and New York, in cooperation with the Geneva Centre for Security Policy (GCSP), co-hosted a panel discussion on new developments, challenges and opportunities for peacebuilding in affected mining communities.
