The first collection of working papers and policy briefs produced by these authors can be found on the Genocide Research Hub:

It's rare that a conference on Rwanda held outside of the country involves exclusively Rwandan lead authors. In doing so, this event aims to show the breadth of opinion among Rwandan researchers based both in Rwanda and the diaspora - and to examine these authors' fresh perspectives on a wide range of issues concerning post-genocide reconstruction and peace.

Dates: 30th - 31st  May 2018

Time: 2.00 - 6.00pm

Venue: Anatomy Lecture Theatre and Museum, King’s Building, Strand Campus, King’s College London,WC2R 2LS
