Leila Zerrougui

Leila Zerrougui is Special Representative and Head of the United Nations Stabilization Mission in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (MONUSCO).

From its original focus on the military criminal justice chain, MONUSCO support is increasingly shifting to the civilian justice system. Our work has demonstrated how political engagement matched with technical and logistical support can contribute to the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, enforcing laws that uphold justice and develop strong institutions for sustainable peace.
