Adult Forum, Sunday, April 22 – Understanding Reconciliation Efforts in Rwanda – Rozlyn Paradis

Rozlyn Paradis is a Luther College senior and International Studies major who spent four months studying in Rwanda’s capital, Kigali, during the spring of 2017. Her research focused on a specific peace-building program called “I am Rwandan.” This program emphasizes the Rwandan identity over all others, specifically that of Hutu, Tutsi and Twa. She was able to conduct eleven interviews with local Rwandans to get their insights on individual experiences of the program.
