The speakers will mainly discuss the opportunities for peace in the Democratic Republic of Congo, a country home to the deadliest conflict since World War II, where a growing youth-led movement is leading the push for democracy over dictatorship. However, towards the end, the panel will broaden the conversation to the pivotal role of grassroots activism in promoting transparency and human rights around the world.
