For many years there has been misconception and mysterysurrounding the events that led up to the civil war in Rwanda andthe subsequent genocide in 1994. Further ethnic conflict led tothe deaths of thousands of civilians, prisoners, insurgents,soldiers and even foreign nationals.This extensive thesis not only attempts to investigate the sourceof the Rwandan conflict, but examines the role of the AnglicanChurch's in helping to reconcile the divided parties. Throughpersonal interviews and in-depth research, the author provides awell-argued analysis of the conflict, with the focus on Christianteaching having had an impact on the socio-cultural constructionof Rwandan relations.It explores in detail the historical and sociological perspectivesthat surround the conflict and examines the reliability, replicationand validity of claims that the conflict was based on the allegednatural hatred between Hutu and Tutsi ethnic groups.The book also raises practical and theoretical questions about theBelgian era and how the conflict was by Belgian rule and hassubsequently plagued the Rwandan people ever since.
