Despite increasing authoritarianism, Rwanda has been widely celebrated as a success story for post-conflict reconstruction, UK development assistance and private investment. At this event, the speakers will discuss the depth and durability of the country's reconstruction, the focus of Remaking Rwanda that examines the country's remarkable post-genocide recovery by paying close attention to memory politics, human rights, justice, foreign relations, land use, education, and other key social institutions and practices.
