Remaking Rwanda

October 4, 2011 • 7:00 – 8:30 pm EDT

A Roundtable Discussion with Dr. Scott Straus

Since the 1994 genocide, Rwanda has slowly begun to rebuild its fragile nation politically, economically, and socially. While these efforts have won international plaudits, some have begun to question the sustainability of the government's reconstruction policies and its approach to reconciliation and political development. Please join the CSIS Africa Program for a discussion with Dr. Scott Straus, Associate Professor of Political Science and International Studies at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and co-editor of Remaking Rwanda: State Building and Human Rights after Mass Violence and CSIS Africa Program Director Jennifer Cooke, author of the recent CSIS report, Rwanda: Assessing Risks to Stability.  

Space is limited. RSVP required. Please RSVP to Joanna Francis at
