La tragédie à Beni: une crise prédite?


En août, au moins 42 civils ont été abattus à la machette à Beni dans l’Est de la RDC. Ce n’est pas la première fois qu’un acte d’une telle violence se produit et ce n’est certainement pas la dernière. Comment peut-on mettre un terme à ces tueries ? Cette note se base sur des recommandations faites lors d’une série de rencontres de la société civile à Beni, rencontres facilitées par Peace Direct entre mars et août 2016.
