Rwandans Researching Rwanda: Social Science Perspectives on Post-Genocide Challenges .

The conference will showcase the work of 10 Rwandan researchers who over the last 18 months have taken part in the Aegis Trust Research, Policy and Higher Education (RPHE) programme, funded by the UK Department for International Development (DFID). The programme, which provides small research grants and expert advice and training to researchers, is designed to bolster the Rwandan research community and to increase its voice in international academic debates and domestic policymaking. A second cohort of authors is currently working on a new set of projects which will be showcased at a similar conference in 2017.

How lessons from Rwanda are saving lives in South Sudan .

During a recent visit to the UK to speak at a conference in London, Nicholas Aru Maan – co-founder of the South Sudan Youth, Peace and Development Organisation (SSYPADO) paid a visit to the UK’s National Holocaust Centre, birthplace of the Aegis Trust, and gave an on-camera interview about the life-saving impact of partnership with Aegis. “Aegis Trust and the Kigali Memorial Centre has been the force behind our continued hope for peacebuilding in South Sudan,” Nicholas says, describing how South Sudanese chiefs inspired by Aegis’ work in Rwanda had helped to reduce conflict by organizing young people to take part in education rather than fighting. “Lives have been saved,” he says, “and that is a preventive measure.”
