It explores how these agreements were reached, their consequences for the population of the respective areas, as well as how GoS exerts its control in the aftermath. Not all areas/cities are included, but rather a selection that serves to illustrate the different developments.

Le présent rapport est une mise à jour du COI Focus daté du 14 juin 2019. Il s’intéresse à l’attitude des autorités congolaises vis-à-vis de leurs ressortissants de retour après avoir quitté illégalement la République démocratique du Congo (RDC) et/ou avoir introduit une demande de protection internationale en Belgique et/ou y avoir séjourné. Le traitement que réservent les autorités aux ressortissants de retour en raison de leur profil politique, ethnique, religieux ou terroriste ne fait pas l’objet de cette recherche.

Le retour dans le pays d’origine doit être envisagé lorsque l’étranger ne réunit plus les conditions requises pour son séjour en Belgique. Ce retour peut être volontaire ou forcé.

Ce rapport couvre la période allant de mai à décembre 2019. La recherche documentaire pour cette mise à jour s’est clôturée le 17 décembre 2019.
