Program Description:

Genocide Healing and Reconciliation

Rwanda, Winter Break 2019

Rwanda landscape
Rwanda is currently one of the most stable and progressive countries in Eastern Africa. Yet, the mass genocide that took place in 1994 is considered to be one of the worst forms of human atrocity the world has ever known, which killed almost a million people within the span of 3 months. How Rwanda has dealt with the aftermath of the tragedy to what the country has become now, given its progress and development, including challenges the country continues to face is what this study abroad program focuses on. What can Rwandans teach the world about healing and reconciliation, including forgiveness? What socio-cultural, economic, and political mechanisms are in place for healing, reconciliation, and forgiveness to take place? What is the role of individual citizens, the central government, the NGOs, including the international community in bringing about healing and reconciliation, including forgiveness in a country that has been fragmented and devastated because of genocide?
