You are invited to a webinar analysing a new ruling alliance in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) and what it means for the DRC’s future.

At the end of 2020, the two-year political alliance between former President Joseph Kabila and Congolese President Felix Tshisekedi abruptly fell apart. Since then a steady stream of former Kabila supporters have moved to join Tshisekedi’s Union Sacree – a broad coalition of parties which aims to form a new majority in parliament.

This seminar analyses what led to the collapse of the Kabila-Tshisekedi coalition. It looks at whether a new political majority has the potential to change the nature and quality of governance in the DRC, and what steps should be taken to secure such a change – or whether recent developments in the DRC are merely a shift from one political camp to another.
