Remaking Rwanda: State Building and Human Rights after Mass Violence (Critical Human Rights) Reviews
This volume is edited by and includes chapters written by some of the leading Rwanda scholars. The chapters address post-genocide Rwanda from a number of angles, including the big ones: accountability, democratic transition, wars in the Congo, but also some lesser known aspects like housing policy, history education, and the prison systems. If you already know about the genocide and want to learn about what happened afterwards, this is a great resource for understanding the many dynamics to post-genocide Rwanda.
