Read the report (pdf)

For a two-week period at the end of June 1997, a three-person team from PHR worked in the Great Lakes region of Africa compiling testimony and data regarding the existence of human rights abuses committed by governments or warring parties against civilian and refugee populations. 

The report's findings on human rights violations in Eastern Congo and Western Rwanda were presented on 16 July 1997 at a hearing sponsored by the US House International Relations Committee.
