This program explores the social, political, and psychosocial processes that have shaped the emergence of conflict in the Lake Victoria Basin. Students also examine the measures that have been taken toward conflict mitigation, reconciliation, resettlement, and prevention in the region. The 1994 genocide against Tutsis in Rwanda and the conflict driven by Joseph Kony and the Lord’s Resistance Army in northern Uganda serve as primary case studies.
