Ethnonationalism and Conflict Resolution. The Armed Group Bany2 in DR Congo

Author: Naupess K. Kibiswa

ISBN: 978-2-88931-031-9
Series number: Globethics.net Theses No. 13
Publication: 2015

Based on evidence collected and analyzed about repetitive armed conflicts in the eastern Democratic Republic of the Congo in Africa, Dr. Kibiswa establishes in this book that Bany2 armed group leaders, involved in insurgencies, fit into the two Van Evera's criteria of ethnonationalist groups. Indeed, they display more loyalty to their ethnic group than to the DRC nation and are moved by their desire to achieve statehood. As such, this underlying motivation of their never-ending fights is hard for the DRC nation to accommodate, while their geographic proximity to their fatherland as well as the availability of natural resources provide them with favorable conditions.
