GIBS Information Centre / GIBSIC‘s insight:

CAR  –  “population 4 million, landlocked and the size of Texas, home to militant groups and undergoing a brutal civil war. On the surface, these facts are easily looked over. Just another African country dealing with the often depicted stereotypes of rebels, machetes and violence.      –    Despite individual feelings of not wanting to get involved, according to the 1948 Genocide Convention, the international community has an absolute responsibility to get involved and do their best to prevent acts of genocide when they occur.    The UN has developed a mandate for multi-dimensional stabilization mission (MINUSCA) which will include assistance programs, translations, disarmament and reintegration. However, despite the focus on civilians, we also need to focus on drawing peace between the Seleka groups and Anti-balaka movement. While French and AU troops are currently on the ground, far more reinforcements are needed in the country if peace is ever to be achieved.
