  • Between 1999 and 2007, an ethnic civil war devastated Ituri District, Democratic Republic of the Congo, killing an estimated 60,000 people and displacing at least half a million more. Today, the war is over, but the source of conflict--competition over access to land in the context of confusing and contradictory land laws--has yet to be addressed. In fact, the widespread and long-term displacement of entire communities as a result of the war has additionally complicated land rights. A Relative Peace is a series of three immersive non-fiction articles that strive to illuminate the sources and ramifications of ethnic land conflicts by examining their impact on the lives of various individuals living in Ituri, DRC.
