The Inter-relationship between Violence, Displacement and the Transition to Stability in the Great Lakes Region

The Inter-relationship between Violence, Displacement and the Transition to Stability in the Great Lakes Region

This paper explores the relationship between violence that engenders displacement and the forms of violence that result from displacement. Focusing specifically on Africa's Great Lakes region, the analysis seeks to point to ways in which a transition to stability can break through the cycles of violence and displacement and, in turn, generate sustainable peace both in individual countries and throughout the region. Implicit throughout the discussion is the need for this discussion to take place not only in the context of the nation-state, but also at a regional level.
