States at Regional Risk, Emory University

Emory visitors Patience Kabamba (far left) and Bruce Knauft (far right) with the staff directors of a United Nations refugee camp for displaced persons in the city of Goma, Eastern Congo, March, 2008. 
Many persons displaced by civil war come to Goma and establish squatter camps, such as this one, which are later recognized by the UN and afforded a modicum of food aid and social services.  On the morning of this visit, reduction in food rations along with a recent government raid, which had driven some people out of the camp, caused a riot.  UN relief agency workers were sympathetic but had few resources to help the situation.
