The Peacekeepers

Top of page

With unprecedented access to the United Nations Department of Peacekeeping, The Peacekeepers provides an intimate and dramatic portrait of the struggle to save a failed state. We follow the determined and often desperate manoeuvres to avert another Rwanda disaster, this time in the Democratic Republic of Congo (the DRC). We are with the peacekeepers in the "crisis room" as they balance the risk of loss of life on the ground with the enormous sums of money required from uncertain donor countries. And we are with UN troops as the Northeast Congo erupts and the future of the DRC, if not all of central Africa, hangs in the balance. In the background, and often impinging on peacekeeping decisions, is the painful memory of Rwanda, the crisis in Iraq, global terrorism and American hegemony in world affairs. But the situation demands immediate attention.
