During this conflict, Laurent-Désiré Kabila led the rebel group, Alliance des Forces Démocratiques pour la Libération du CongoZaire (AFDL), which was supported by various groups, including the Banyamulenge, a Tutsi minority settled in eastern DRC since the eighteenth century. By September 1996, troops from Rwanda, Uganda and Burundi were intervening occasionally in eastern Zaire. Rwanda wanted to pursue the Hutu extremist militias that had fled to eastern DRC after the genocide and which were leading incursions into western Rwanda from bases in eastern DRC.

Some of the disputed territories were occupied by the United Nation’s mission MONUC, which installed posts and buffer zones (Bucyalimwe Mararo 2006: 281; Tull 2002: 215; 2003: 186; 2004: 219). Despite the Peace Agreement and elections, the Kivus remain unstable and insecure, with more stable periods being interrupted by renewed escalations of violence. Between 2006 and the end of the research period in 2007, the main obstacle to a peaceful settlement were rebel activities led by General Laurent Nkunda’s Congrès National pour la Défense du Peuple (CNDP), which is closely connected to the question of security for the Banyamulenge and repatriation of Rwandan Hutu.

Therefore, the decision to focus on corporate engagement (consisting of policies and activities) in security governance in this volume needs some justification. The output dimension allows us to observe whether corporations have clearly articulated policies on security in a conflict zone. Therefore, the intentionality of security-related corporate engagement can be investigated more explicitly here than elsewhere. The scope of commitments (global, national or local, unilateral, multilateral) can be examined.
