Description

This chapter describes the active or passive role of the major international actors in Rwanda during the genocide: France, which stood by the murderous government; Belgium, the former colonial power; the U.S. under President Clinton; the UN and fellow African countries. Another question discussed is whether the outside world could have prevented the genocide.
