Protecting Human Rights in the Democratic Republic of the Congo

Intimidation, violence, and human rights abuses remain daily threats to the lives of citizens in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC). Field representative Sophie Borel explains how The Carter Center has been working in the DRC since 2007 to protect human rights and support civil society organizations and how those efforts will continue in the aftermath of the nation's 2011 elections, as tensions escalate in an already fragile Congolese society.

Founded in 1982 by former U.S. President Jimmy Carter and former First Lady Rosalynn Carter in partnership with Emory University, The Carter Center is committed to advancing human rights and alleviating unnecessary human suffering. The Center wages peace, fights disease, and builds hope worldwide.
