For many years there has been misconception and mystery surrounding the events that led up to the civil war in Rwanda and the subsequent genocide in 1994. Further ethnic conflict led to the deaths of thousands of civilians, prisoners, insurgents, soldiers and even foreign nationals. This extensive thesis not only attempts to investigate the source of the Rwandan conflict, but examines the role of the Anglican Church's in helping to reconcile the divided parties. Through personal interviews and in-depth research, the author provides a well-argued analysis of the conflict, with the focus on Christian teaching having had an impact on the socio-cultural construction of Rwandan relations. It explores in detail the historical and sociological perspectives that surround the conflict and examines the reliability, replication and validity of claims that the conflict was based on the alleged natural hatred between Hutu and Tutsi ethnic groups. The book also raises practical and theoretical questions about the Belgian era and how the conflict was by Belgian rule and has subsequently plagued the Rwandan people ever since.
