Abstract: The purpose of this thesis was to gain an in depth understanding of exactly what role FDLR play in the relations of DRC and Rwanda. Surveys were administered to both Congolese and Rwandans. respondents from DRC were chosen from refugees, where sample size of 188 respondents was selected from total population of 370. FARDC officer was 01, and from M23 rebels, 25 respondents were chosen, whereas, the respondents from Rwanda were chosen from RDF (01 Officer) and from FDLR rebels, 20 respondents were chosen from the total population of 21. The researcher compiled the questionnaires and discovered that, the attitudes of respondents from above categories towards FDLR are almost same and they simply consider them (FDLR) as evils and source of conflict in DRC/Rwanda common border in particular, and in the Region in general. According to respondents of the study as well as the authors who wrote about RwandaJDRC relations, indicated the reluctance and weakness of International community and DRC respectively. Both countries citizen’s attitude revealed their lack of confidence in International Community and DRC willingness to cease its support to FDLR rebels, the group that was considered as a barrier to relations of DRC and Rwanda. The researcher again, (through questionnaires and Interviews) revealed that, FDLR continue to carry out serious human rights violations and sow fear along DRC/Rwanda common border, provocative acts that have been happening for Over 20 years since the Genocide in Rwanda. It (FDLR) has made many promises to disarm. Results are all that matter, and military pressure is needed —the researcher has found — for results/permanent solution
