Political Governance in Post-genocide Rwanda Critical analysis The Spring Semester of 2014 Political Governance in Post-genocide Rwanda I. Summary: Rawanda is a country full of paradoxes, difficult for outsiders to understand what is really happening there. While hearing ‘’Rwanda’’ the first thing came into our mind is Genocide, massacre, poverty, discrimination, corruption, and violence. Post-genocide Rawanda have been receiving considerable amount of funds from international community despite being a dictatorship along with miserable human rights record and instability in region. Rwanda is facing one of the most serious problems with its political governance. Due to dictatorship there is little attention on vast majority and day by day people are getting poorer and less aware of their rights. Current regime is having full control over people and space. According to a research by commonwealth human Rights initiative ‘’Rwanda is an army with a state, rather than a state with an army’’ (Reyntjens 2007). And that has led this country to witness war crimes and crimes against humanity which have become a source of instability in the region. In order to understand the core problems existing in Rawanda and how international community is tolerating it by giving them funds without bringing any changes on its governance system. Thus, this paper will analyze the ways in which it dealt with external and internal voices, strategies it design to silence people, and its information management as well as some recommendations on the regime change and political governance system. It will also look into how international community and how the dictator regime is ignoring its deeply flawed political governance (Shyaka 2010). II.
