This presentation will compare and contrast the role of the international community and regional efforts in these long running African crises. It will focus on the UN lead role in the DRC and the SADC lead role in Zimbabwe, bearing in mind the UN Charter’s provision for both international and regional engagement and action. What has worked and what are the lessons for international policy makers and lawyers?

Ambassador Matthew Neuhaus was from January 2011 until March this year Australian Ambassador to Zimbabwe, and Australia’s first Ambassador (non-resident) to the DRC . He has previously served as Political Director at the Commonwealth Secretariat, based in London, from 2002-2008 and Australian High Commissioner to Nigeria and Ghana and is at present a Visiting Fellow of the Lauterpact Centre.
