Description

Examine the root causes of conflict and analyze measures to foster resettlement and reconciliation in Rwanda and Uganda. This program explores the social, political, and psy­chosocial processes that have shaped the emergence of conflict in the Lake Victoria Basin. You will also exam­ine the measures that have been taken toward conflict mitigation, reconciliation, resettlement, and preven­tion in the region. The 1994 genocide against Tutsis in Rwanda and the conflict driven by Joseph Kony and the Lord’s Resistance Army in northern Uganda serve as primary case studies.
