Military power, interventions, and its limits
Located in the middle of Africa, the Central African Republic and the Democratic Republic of Congo both serve as stages for ongoing tragedies. The two countries that emerged out of colonial rule in 1960 are haunted by conflict and constant rebellion, being rich in resources and riddled with opportunistic militias. Despite UN resolutions and peace-keeping missions, the DRC has been the arena for one of the world’s deadliest conflicts for the last fifty years.
The Stockholm Association of International Affairs will visit the Ministry for Foreign Affairs. The unit for the MENA region will emphasize current situation in the Gulf countries and also inform about EU actions during the Arabian spring.
There will be further information about how the Swedish delegation work in the region.
The visit will take place on the 27th of May and will be in Swedish
