  • Rwandan Hutu Regime
    1,884 words
    Intervention in the Rwandan Genocide: Prevention preferable, but better intervention second best The Hutus and Tutsis were not traditionally different, and ethnicity in Rwanda only became important during Belgium colonization when the more European-looking Tutsis were chosen as the aristocracy to rule over the Hutus. After Rwanda's independence in 1961 the Hutu majority, comprising roughly 85% of the population, ruled the country. Between 1961 and the outbreak of genocide in 1994 many Tutsis fle...
  • Ethnic Group In Rwanda By The Hutu
    772 words
    Genocide in Rwanda The definition of genocide as given in the Websters College Dictionary is The deliberate and systematic extermination of a national, racial, political, or cultural group. This definition depicts the situation in 1994 of Rwanda, a small, poor, central African country.

In this essay I will briefly describe the history...
  • Professional Negotiators Mediators
    1,666 words
    I decided to surf the internet in search of inspiration, and I found it on the mediate. com website. Robert Benjamin's article "Hotel Rwanda and the Guerrilla Negotiator" definitely caught my eye... particularly since I had checked the DVD out from the library last Friday but hadn't yet watched it. Benjamin's article piqued my interest enough to do some additional research on Rwanda, and passion was born. While a colony of Belgium, Rwanda was separated into two tribal groups which many say was b...
  • Civil War In Rwanda

    In this essay I will be writing about the civil war in Rwanda. I will be explaining, why it happened, how it happened, when it happened, and give you all the details. A mountainous country in east central Africa, the Republic of Rwanda lies south of the equator. It is one of Africa's smallest countries, covering an area of only 10,169 square miles (26,338 square kilometers). Zaire and Lake Kivu border Rwanda on the west, Uganda on the north, Tanzania on the east, and Burundi on the south. Rwanda...
  • Tribes Of The Hutu And Tutsi
    1,597 words
    The Hutu Tribe The culture of the Hutu and Tutsi tribes of Rwanda, Africa interests me for many reasons. One reason is that they are so diverse from our American way of life. Another reason is that I have heard a little bit about them in the news and by talking to people. This sparked my interest and made me want to learn more about them. I will cover a wide variety of information in my report. This will include the land where they live, their way of life, their history and ancestry, and what th...
  • Hutu As The Number Of Tutsi
    328 words
    Some tens of thousands fled to neighboring countries and others hid within Rwanda, in the ceilings of houses, in holes in the ground, in the forest, in the swamps. Some bought their lives once, others paid repeatedly for their safety over a period of weeks, either with money or with sexual services. Many Tutsi who are alive survived because of the action of Hutu, whether a single act of courage from a stranger or the delivery of food and protection over many weeks by friends or family members. T...
  • Tutsi Government
    889 words
    The Crisis in Darfur, Sudan Genocide, the attempt to destroy a people because of their presumed race or ethnicity, remains alive and well. The definition of genocide as given in the Webster's Dictionary is "The deliberate and systematic extermination of a national, racial, political, or cultural group". This definition depicts the situation in 1994 of Rwanda, a small and poor central African country. What makes this crisis particularly shocking is the structural character of the violence: villag...
  • Eight Percent Of The Community Of Rwanda
    594 words
    Rwanda Report Rwanda is an African country in East Central Africa. Rwanda is just a very little degrees below the Equator which is not too shabby in my mind. Below the Equator would be in the south and so it is actually in south central. Get it South Central (get it) HA! HA! In Rwanda there are about seven hundred and ten per square which in my mind a whole lot of people I don't think even San Bernardino has that many but what do I know. Rwanda is twenty six thousand three hundred and eighty eig...
  • Rwanda Population
    645 words
    Rwanda Population Rwanda's population has traditionally been composed of Hutu, Tusi and Twa peoples. however, civil stiff at independence and genocidal civil war in 1994 have altered these percentages. the 1991 offical census estimated the country's population at 7,164,995. Talking into consideration Rwanda's growth rate, the population in 1996 should have been between 7.8 and 8 million people, but it is estimated that less than 5.5 to 6 million people were living in Rwanda in late 1995. Rwanda'...

  • Genocide In Rwanda
    1,753 words
    Rwanda: Genocide or Civil War The current state of affairs in Rwanda constitutes a catastrophe that never should have happened. Unfortunately, it has happened, but do the circumstances and outcomes warrant using the term "genocide" Based on facts about the ethnic make up of Rwanda, there is abundant proof that this is actually a case of violent, ongoing civil wars, and the use of the term "genocide" is not justified. The major crime problem in Rwanda since 1994 has been mass murder, officially k...
  • Hutu Genocide Of The Tutsi
    2,827 words
    Between April and July of 1994, more than 800,000 people, mostly Tutsi civilians, were slaughtered in a genocidal campaign organized by the Hutu hard-liners. By educating myself as well as others, I hope that we can prevent genocide organizers from eliminating the minority, Tutsi, and remove the tensions between these two groups. Pressure must be placed on the government to put the 120,000 suspected genocide criminals on trial. This topic is one of the most compelling human dramas of the century...
  • End To Hutu Attacks On Tutsis
    1,642 words
    In 1994 in Rwanda, in eastern Africa, there was an extremely effective genocide campaign in which the Hutu-Power majority practically exterminated the minority Tutsi population. What is even more disturbing is how the rest of the world decided to ignore this fact and take little to no action to stop it, even though doing so directly violated the UN Genocide Convention. The events of 1994, are the subject of Phillip Gourevitch's book, We Wish to Inform You That Tomorrow We Will Be Killed With Our...
  • Country Of Rwanda After The Genocide
    3,127 words
    The Crime of American Passivity Genocide is a crime on a different scale to all other crimes against humanity, and it implies an intention to completely exterminate the chosen group; genocide is therefore the greatest of the crimes against humankind. The massacres that transpired in Rwanda less than four years ago possess every quality attributed to the ramifications of genocide. There, in the clearest case of genocide since Hitler, a vast slaughter occurred which claimed the lives of more that ...
