Congo Research Group (CRG) is an independent, non-profit research project dedicated to understanding the violence that affects millions of Congolese. It carries out rigorous research on different aspects of the conflict. Its first report, for example, investigated who is behind a series of massacres in the Beni region, while others reports look at links between elections and conflict, and at armed groups in the Kivus region. All of its research is informed by deep historical and social knowledge of the problem at hand, and it often invests months of field research, speaking with hundreds of people to produce a report. Based at CIC, the CRG publishes in English and French.
