Rwanda 1994-2014: Looking Back, Looking Forward

Mon 24 March 6:30 - 8pm 2014, followed by reception

Great Hall, King's College London

London, UK

Past event

Rwanda has made significant political, social and economic strides since the 1994 genocide, which in the space of 100 days claimed the lives of over 800,000 Tutsis and their perceived Hutu and Twa sympathisers.

Today the Rwandan government faces substantial criticisms regarding political liberalisation, human rights and volatile foreign relations in the Great Lakes region.

This event looks back to ask how we should most effectively commemorate the genocide and looks forward to ask to what extent criticisms of Rwanda are justified and where the country is headed in the next 20 years and beyond
