DCAF is organizing a technical workshop at DRC Mining Week to raise awareness of the new security and human rights expectations of mining actors in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC).

The panelists will be:
-    Mirna Adjami, Principal Programme Manager, DCAF
-    Frédéric Chenais,  Senior Expert, Swiss Ministry of Foreign Affairs
-    Tony Ntambu, Chief of Staff, Ministry of Human Rights.
