Promoting Understanding, Healing, and Reconciliation in Rwanda

Promoting Understanding, Healing, and Reconciliation in Rwanda

(p.300) 12 Promoting Understanding, Healing, and Reconciliation in Rwanda
Overcoming Evil

Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses the use of training/workshops with varied groups in Rwanda to promote understanding of the origins and impact of mass violence, as well as avenues to healing and reconciliation. The evaluation of this work showed positive effects. As workshop participants applied the approach and concepts to their own experience, they seemed to gain experiential understanding, which may be a significant first step toward reconciliation—to openness to the “other”, resistance to negative influences, and active bystandership. The approach was also used in educational radio programs in Rwanda, then in Burundi and the Congo.
