Oxfam’s programmes in the Democratic Republic of Congo work in a context in which violent and non-violent conflict affect communities and protection and governance concerns are closely linked. Some protection threats, such as illegal taxes and arbitrary arrests, stem from structural governance issues, and other protection threats, such as forced marriage, are exacerbated through the challenges that local authorities face in fulfilling their role as duty bearers.

This learning report explores the overlap between protection and governance, and Oxfam's staff in the DRC share learning of potential value for the review and design of other governance and protection programmes in fragile and conflict-affected contexts.
