Ethnicity and Power in Burundi and Rwanda: Different Paths to Mass Violence
Preview not available

Abstract

Burundi and Rwanda are small East African countries with almost identical economic, social, and political features. Both have also experienced regular, extreme massive violence. Yet the processes leading to violence and the nature of the violence—genocide in Rwanda and civil war in Burundi—are very different. The article discusses the divergent historical processes that led to violence in Burundi and Rwanda and the individual motives that brought people to kill their innocent neighbors.
