In Volume 4 No 2 2007 edition of the journal, we focused on the Democratic Republic of Congo, often referred to as the DRC, and formerly known variously as the Congo Free State, Belgian Congo, The Congo, Congo / Leopoldville, Congo / Kinshasa and Zaire. The DRC is a country rent by ethnic strife and civil war since 1994, culminating in the First Congo War that toppled Mobutu in 1997. We noted that since 1998, the country has suffered greatly from the impacts of the devastating Second Congo War (sometimes referred to as the African World War), and believed to be one of the world's deadliest conflicts since World War II. Contributors to the issue discussed these conflicts, efforts at mediation, and current talks of post conflict reconstructions.
