"This introduction unpacks the traumatised history of the DRC, highlighting the patterns of coercive rule, failed transition, domestic decay and interconnected conflicts. It thus sets the parameters for the discussions in the following chapters on formal and informal ways of pursing justice amid the peace that has slowly unfolded since 2002." (abstract)
