ABSTRACT
The article describes how the peacekeeping operation in the Democratic Republic of Congo can be improved by U.S. military doctrine. Known as the United Nations (UN) Organization Stabilization Mission in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (MONUC), more than 18,000 troops are engaged to prevent violence in the country. One impact of the ramped up stabilization efforts of MONUC in Congo has increased cases of violence against civilians in the region. To improve the peacekeeping efforts in Congo, the use of counterinsurgency doctrine is recommended. Specifically, military and civilian agencies in the U.S. should provide technical assistance and training in Congo which are designed to promote rule of law, good governance and security sector reform.
