To recognize an event as filled with human pain and suffering as the Genocide against the Tutsi in Rwanda comes with a certain obligation. That obligation foremost is to document, analyze, and learn from the events that led to the genocide as well as to consider and to understand its legacy. Ultimately these efforts should help the world community act to prevent and intervene at all levels to forever assure that such events do not repeat themselves.
The scholars and activists who have contributed to these chapters have taken that important first step of reflecting upon the events of 1994 and upon that which has happened since. Practical, evidence-based conclusions that build upon the solid analytical framework can provide guidance for a better future.
