Editorial by the Executive Director

I am pleased to launch the 2018 Quarterly Bulletin N° 1 of the key events organised or attended by the International Conference on the Great Lakes Region (ICGLR)’s Levy Mwanawasa Regional Centre for Democracy and Good Governance (LMRC), during the first quarter 2018.

The ICGLR-LMRC is a scientific and technical organ of the ICGLR. The Regional Centre was established as a Regional “Think Tank” by the Heads of State and Government of ICGLR Member States (namely Angola, Burundi, Central African Republic (CAR), Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), Kenya, Republic of Congo, Rwanda, South Sudan, Sudan, Tanzania, Uganda and Zambia)” in the Pact on Security, Stability and Development in the Great Lakes Region adopted on 15th December 2006.

With its operationalisation in 2011, the Regional Centre provides a foundation to the ICGLR’s Programme of Action on the promotion of Good Governance and Democracy whose vision is that of a Region characterised by deeply entrenched values, principles and norms on democracy, good governance and observance of human rights.

The objective of the Quarterly Bulletin is to strengthen sharing information with key stakeholders in the Region and abroad so as to effectively implement its mission which is to reinforce the capacities of social and political institutions of ICGLR Member States in the areas of Democracy, Good Governance, Human Rights and Civic Education.

I wish you a good reading.
