View all copies of this ISBN edition:

The Rwandan Patriotic Front (RPF) has led Rwanda since it ended the Genocide in 1994. During this time, the RPF has used several mediums, including the education system, the media and government publications to change the history of the country and categories of identification in an attempt to promote reconciliation and prevent future violence. Their methods and effectiveness are analyzed by looking at historical narratives of Genocide orphans through the lens of Social Representation Theory. Through emphasis on Ancestry, White involvement, Independence and Peace, the RPF has successfully started a change in discourse. However, this process is not complete and former representations, narratives and identities can still be found. True shift in representations and identity may not be able to occur until the RPF acknowledges competing narratives and integrates them more effectively into the new versions. Without this integration, the former identities and narratives may still affect Rwanda and cause future violence.
