This report examines the past to think critically about the current UN presence in the DRC from several historical perspectives.

First, Henning Melber, the Director of the Dag Hammarskjöld Foundation, examines the standard of personal integrity which the Secretary General set for his successors in leading international actions in the DRC.

Next, UN missions past and present are ana-lysed on their self-described mandates to restore order to the DRC. Coel Kirkby re-considers ONUC, the first mission, and its influence on the post-independence power struggles.
