Program Description:

Examine the root causes of conflict and analyze measures to foster resettlement and reconciliation in Uganda and Rwanda.

ugandaThis program explores the social, political, and psy­chosocial processes that have shaped the emergence of conflict in the Lake Victoria Basin. Students 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.

Major topics of study include:

  • The history, contemporary politics, and role of the state in each conflict
  • A theoretical framework and historical context in which to situate the 1994 Rwandan genocide and the emergence of the Lord’s Resis­tance Army (LRA) in the Acholi region of Uganda
  • Measures that prevent and miti­gate conflict
