Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC): Human rights situation

30-06-2015

Since 2013, action against armed groups by the national security forces and the UN MONUSCO Mission in the eastern regions has significantly diminished both violence against civilians and related human rights violations. However, in the rest of the country, human rights violations such as violence against women, police impunity, a dysfunctional justice system and shrinking space for political dissent, remain major concerns.
