APDE is a socio-legal, apolitical and non-confessional NGO working on mining, human rights which can lead concrete response actions in specific areas such as: conflict prevention and resolution, restoration of peace in the mining and agricultural sector, sustainable development for Congolese citizens.
This study focuses on incidents reported between June 2019 and April 2020 via the “Kufatilia” platform in the Misisi mining branch in Fizi territory. It focuses on three categories of incidents: illegal checkpoints and taxes, violence and theft, and child labor.
IPIS supports non-governmental organisations in Eastern Democratic Republic of Congo and provides the support and platform to disseminate their research results, within the framework of the project “Voix du Congo”.
The opinions and facts reported in these reports do not, in any way, reflect IPIS or IPIS’ researchers’ positions but give an insight into the way Congolese civil society organisations work and analyse the problems and realities they face.
