Jacob (American University of Nigeria) examines the information operations activities of the UN mission in the Democratic Republic of Congo, and assesses the effectiveness of leaflet drops, phone calls to commanders of armed groups, strategically located quick impact projects, and Radio Okapi. The study finds that the current Western libertarian approach of seeking to achieve psychological impacts on individuals needs to give way to a more interactive approach aimed at social impacts with content drawn from the rich African oral traditions and traditionally transactional processes of information and meaning sharing.
