An incisive analysis of genocide and its aftermath
In After Genocide, leading scholars and practitioners analyse the political, legal and regional impact of events in post-genocide Rwanda within the broader themes of transitional justice, reconstruction and reconciliation. Given the forthcoming fifteenth anniversary of the Rwandan genocide, and continued mass violence in Africa, especially in Darfur, the Democratic Republic of Congo and northern Uganda, this volume is unquestionably of continuing relevance.
‘This book should be labelled “for the mature individual only”. But for that mature individual it is of extreme interest. It shows, far from any Manichean stereotyping, the many facets of having to try to live in an impossibly complex social and human situation. Highly recommended.’
17 March 2009: A symposium to mark the 15th anniversary of the Rwandan genocide and to launch After Genocide: Transitional Justice, Post-Conflict Reconstruction, and Reconciliation in Rwanda and Beyond took place at the University of Oxford on 17 March 2009. A podcast at the event is available at the University of Oxford's Institute for Ethics, Law and Armed Conflict website.
