In the aftermath of the 1994 Rwandan genocide, the RPF has employed various means - rigged elections, elimination of opposition parties and civil society, legislation outlawing dissenting opinions, and terrorism - to consolidate power and perpetuate its position as the nation's ruling party. Although many international observers have hailed Rwanda as a 'success story' for its technocratic governance, societal reforms, and economic development, Reyntjens complicates this picture by casting light on the regime's human rights abuses, social engineering projects, information management schemes, and retributive justice system.EthnicityPolitical aspectsRwandaHuman rightsRwandaRwandaPolitics and government1994-RwandaEthnic relationsEthnicityPolitical aspectsHuman rights320.967571Reyntjens Filip600465UkCbUPUkCbUPBOOK9910463972703321Political governance in post-genocide Rwanda2480769UNINA
