Tutsi Genocide in Rwanda 1994

Pp. 84-101 (18)

Fabienne Le Houérou


In this chapter, I unpack the factors to contribute to the Rwandan genocide in 1994, as well as the implications on the nation and the international system. This chapter highlights the legacy of Belgium’s colonial enterprise in the 19th century as a driver of ethnic animosity. International inaction represents the ebb of United Nations Security Council-mandated intervention.
