Recommendations: Protecting civilians from LRA abductions

Apr 2014
The Lord's Resistance Army (LRA) has abducted over 3,400 Congolese civilians since 2008. In February 2014 alone the LRA abducted 35 people in Haut Uele district of the Democratic Republic of Congo's (DRC) Orientale Province. In response to this enduring violence, Conciliation Resources and 58 other civil society groups have sent a joint letter to the UN peacekeeping mission in the DRC (MONUSCO). The letter provides concrete recommendations on how peacekeepers deployed in LRA-affected zones can better protect civilians.
