Post-Conflict Peace-building : the Experience of Rwanda

November 8-9, 2011
Kigali, Rwanda

Concept note

Although Rwanda experienced one of the most violent conflicts of the 20th century, the country has achieved a lot of success in reconciliation, reconstruction and development since the conflict ended. This was the result of a combination of leadership, national ownership, and innovative approaches to governance and employment generation with the support of the international community.

The conference will provide a platform to reflect on Rwanda’s experience in tackling post-conflict challenges and on the lessons learned from this experience.

Earlier this year, Ambassador Eugène-Richard Gasana, Rwanda’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations, was elected Chair of the UN Peace-building Commission. In his inaugural statement, Ambassador Gasana underscored “the solidarity of Rwanda with other post-conflict countries to share its experience in post-conflict reconciliation, reconstruction and development."

The conference will bring together leaders of key international and regional organizations as well as experts to enrich discussions and provide external analytical perspectives.
