Abstract or Description

When one imagines the small African nation of Rwanda, it is difficult not to think of the brutal genocide that occurred over a period of about 100 days beginning in April of 1994, a national tragedy that resulted in the massacre of 20% of the national population. While the nation may be trying its best to redesign a new image for itself, it is clear that the genocide has left a lasting mark on Rwanda’s history and has strongly influenced international and scholarly perceptions of the country for decades
