Turning the Tide in Eastern Congo (part 2)

Did the new UN Force Intervention Brigade really tip the scales, or was it the sanctions on neighbouring Rwanda? And what happens next? The M23 militia may be gone for now but as long as there's a scramble for mineral wealth in Eastern Congo, other armed factions will come and go.

  • Simone SCHLINDWEIN, Great Lakes correspondent for German newspaper TAZ;
  • General (Ret). Dominique TRINQUAND, Expert on United Nations and peacekeeping operations;
  • Douglas YATES, Author of 'The Scramble for African Oil: Oppression, Corruption and War for Control of Africa's Natural Resources';
  • Cedric KALONJI, Congolese journalist and blogger.

Produced and prepared by David Boratav and Haxie Meyers-Belkin
