Uganda - Paul Collier; Colin S. Scott
ISBN: 9780821346822
Publication Date: 2000-06-08
Post-conflict reconstruction is not new to the World Bank. In fact, the Bank's first loan was to the Government of France to rebuild the country after World War II. What is new, is the rapidly increasing number of post-conflict areas, and the enormity and complexity of rebuilding in each case. To better assist post-conflict areas in the future, the Bank is studying past experiences in dealing with post-conflict reconstruction. This volume represents one in a series. The other volumes discuss post-conflict reform in Bosnia and Herzegovina and El Salvador. Although the Bank played a significant role in assisting with post-conflict reconstruction in each country, the causes of state failure or collapse differ. Also different are the factors that influenced the initiation or resumption of Bank operations. This publication focuses on the World Bank's experience in Uganda.

Re-Imagining Rwanda - Johan Pottier; David Anderson (Contribution by); Carolyn Brown (Contribution by); Christopher Clapham (Contribution by); Michael Gomez (Contribution by); Patrick Manning (Contribution by); David Robinson (Contribution by)
ISBN: 9780521813662
Publication Date: 2002-09-26
The tragic conflict in Rwanda and the Great Lakes in 1994-1996 attracted the horrified attention of the world's media. Journalists, diplomats and aid workers struggled to find a way to make sense of the bloodshed. Johan Pottier's troubling study shows that the post-genocide regime in Rwanda was able to impose a simple yet persuasive account of Central Africa's crises upon international commentators new to the region, and he explains the ideological underpinnings of this official narrative. He also provides a sobering analysis of the way in which this simple, persuasive, but fatally misleading analysis of the situation on the ground led to policy errors that exacerbated the original crisis. Professor Pottier has extensive field experience in the region, from before and after the genocide, and he has also worked among refugees in eastern Zaire.

The Failure to Prevent Genocide in Rwanda - Fred Grünfeld; Anke Huijboom
ISBN: 9789004157811
Publication Date: 2007-05-23
This volume is about the failure to prevent genocide in Rwanda in 1994. In particular, the research focuses on why the early warnings of an emerging genocide were not translated into early preventative action. The warnings were well documented by the most authoritative source, the Canadian U.N. peace-keeping commander General Romeo Dallaire and sent to the leading political civil servants in New York. The communications and the decisionmaking are scrutinized, i.e., who received what messages at what time, to whom the messages were forwarded and which (non-) decisions were taken in response to the alarming reports of weapon deliveries and atrocities. This book makes clear that this genocide could have been prevented. Published under the Transnational Publishers imprint.

Conflict Transformation and Social Change in Uganda - Susanne Buckley-Zistel
ISBN: 9780230537620
Publication Date: 2008-11-15
Drawing on the concept of hermeneutics the book argues that the successes and setbacks of conflict transformation in Teso can be understood through analyzing the impact of memory, identity, closure and power on social change and calls for a comprehensive effort of dealing with the past in war-torn societies.

Remaking Rwanda - Scott Straus (Editor); Lars Waldorf (Editor)
ISBN: 9780299282646
Publication Date: 2011-04-18
In the mid-1990s, civil war and genocide ravaged Rwanda. Since then, the country’s new leadership has undertaken a highly ambitious effort to refashion Rwanda’s politics, economy, and society, and the country’s accomplishments have garnered widespread praise. Remaking Rwanda is the first book to examine Rwanda’s remarkable post-genocide recovery in a comprehensive and critical fashion. By paying close attention to memory politics, human rights, justice, foreign relations, land use, education, and other key social institutions and practices, this volume raises serious concerns about the depth and durability of the country’s reconstruction.             Edited by Scott Straus and Lars Waldorf, Remaking Rwanda brings together experienced scholars and human rights professionals to offer a nuanced, historically informed picture of post-genocide Rwanda—one that reveals powerful continuities with the nation’s past and raises profound questions about its future.     Best Special Interest Books, selected by the American Association of School Librarians   Best Special Interest Books, selected by the Public Library Reviewers
