Difficult Choices in the New Post-Conflict Agenda: The International Community in Rwanda after the Genocide

Abstract

Since the genocide, development agencies have spent tens of millions of dollars in Rwanda on justice, governance, security and reconciliation--issues they used to consider far beyond their mandate until very recently. As a result, Rwanda has emerged as one of the countries where the new post-conflict agenda is being most strongly implemented, under extremely difficult conditions. An analysis of donor behaviour in two high politics areas--the nature of the government and justice--shows that deep and unresolved ethical problems exist with this post-conflict agenda. Lack of information and understanding, conflicts between goals and principles, the difficulty of associating the people concerned in an equitable manner--all these and other issues render unclear the ethical basis upon which donors can base decisions which often have life and death implications for thousands of people.
