In 1994, Rwanda was the site of one of the most atrocious genocides in contemporary human history. In the span of 100 days, about 1,000,00 people were killed, resulting in a broken and devastated country. Since 1994, Rwanda's peacebuilding process has been successful in restoring trust in state institutions, engaging Rwandans in the reconstruction of sustainable reconciliation and in overcoming ethnic divisions. During the semester program, students will be based in Kigali, Rwanda's capital city, a medium-sized modern city which reflects signs of both successful recovery from the genocide and enduring poverty. Students will study post-genocide restoration and peacebuilding, the Kinyarwanda language, and conduct an independent study project.
