Rwandan Perspectives on Post-conflict Reconstruction and Sustainable Peace:
Enhancing Research, Influencing Policy
The Aegis Trust, the SOAS Politics department and the Dickson Poon School of Law, King's College London (KCL) in collaboration with the African Leadership Centre, invite you to the conference entitled: "Rwandan Perspectives on Post-Conflict Reconstruction and Sustainable Peace: Enhancing Research, Influencing Policy". The conference will take place at KCL on 30 and 31 May 2018.
- Prof ‘Funmi Olonisakin, Vice-Principal (International) King’s College London
- Dr James Smith, CEO of the Aegis Trust
The purpose of the conference is to showcase the work of some of the Rwandan researchers who have been supported through the Aegis Research, Policy and Higher Education programme over the last three years (initially with funding from DFID and now SIDA). The first collection of working papers and policy briefs produced by these authors can be found on the Genocide Research Hub: http://www.genocideresearchhub.org.rw/aegis-research/.
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.
