Engaging Leaders for Statebuilding: The Case of the Democratic Republic of the Congo

Michael Lund and Howard Wolpe

This study describes efforts made since 2006 from a Leadership Project and Africa Program-combined initiative, the Initiative for a Cohesive Leadership in the DRC (ILCCE). It takes the ILCCE’s approach and activities in the Democratic Republic of the Congo and identifies and weighs the chief results it has achieved and the factors that led to these results. The overall aim is to determine the comparative advantage this type of third-party engagement may have in transcending conflicts and meeting the challenges of post-conflict countries.
