Reconciliation, peace building, and post-conflict reconstruction in Rwanda

2014-2-14 (Fri) 3:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m.

Rwanda experienced years of war that ended with the genocide of 1994. However, since 1994, Rwanda is being noticed by the world as a country achieving a difficult national reconciliation and outstanding economic growth. Come and listen to a pivotal member of the Rwandan government, an important man who has been involved in policy making. This lecture is a great opportunity not only for students of the Graduate School of Humanities and Sciences or the Graduate School of Letters, but also for all Osaka University faculty members and students interested in conflict, conflict resolution, reconciliation, and development assistance. Ambassador Murigande's visit will be a big step in the development of exchange with education and research institutes in both Osaka University and Rwanda.
Lecturer: Charles Murigande, Ambassador of Rwanda to Japan
Dr. Murigande grew up as a refugee in Burundi. He obtained a doctor's degree in science from a university in Belgium in 1986, and later served as an assistant professor at the Cancer Center and the School of Medicine at Howard University in the U.S. In Rwanda, he served as Minister of Transport and Communications, Minister of Foreign Affairs, Minister of Education, and Vice President at National University of Rwanda.
