Oxfam Report on SSR in the Congo

Oxfam has just released a report on US efforts towards security sector reform in the Congo. It's a nice summary of the initiatives the US government is pursuing in the Congo. Bottom line: neither the foreign donors not the Congolese government seem very serious about success. The Congolese are reluctant to take the necessary steps to reform the security services, preferring a weak, fragmented army. Foreign donors have not coordinated their efforts or devised a coherent, comprehensive strategy, in part due to bilateral interests, in part due to lack of funds.

The report also provides a list of detailed policy recommendations for the US goverment.

Mulberry Handbag said...

The soft Mulberry Clutch Bags tan leather
makes Bolsa Belstaff for an easy-
to-wear shoulder bag, burberry boots and the long shoulder
strap is Hermes Kelly Bags precisely what I
adore in Coach New Arrivals a saddlebag like
this. Just in time for winter tweeds and browns, the color of this bag will also easily transition into spring wardrobes
because of Mulberry Clutch Bags its light hue.
While the inside is not entirely lined with suede, there are suede accents along with a stamped canvas
Burberry Scarf lining. Finishing off the bag is a magnetic
fastening tab for the fold-over flap. It has been a while since a Mulberry bag stood out on my radar, and the Evelina is
quite cute.After I wrote the title for this post, I realized that I am an over-user of
Coach New Arrivals the word chic. Still, though,
many times it seems like a fitting word for many different items,
Louis Vuitton bags and the Mulberry Evelina
deserves to be called chic.

In the past, I’ve found many Mulberry bags to be a tad masculine, and the Evelina’s name matches the silhouette. A touch
of femininity with a ton of usability makes me love this Mulberry bag.
