AbstractThe characterisation of the Republic of Rwanda by Western donors and governments in the past decades has been unfavourable to say the very least, especially when it comes to political governance, and it is the objective of this thesis to find out whether this perception is justifiable by looking at the modus operandi of the Rwandan government, and the results its policies have had economically from the 1994 genocide to the present. To find out how the Rwandan type of governance was formed, a rather large time-span is under scrutiny in this thesis, from pre-colonial times to now. The document also includes the report of a seminar on good governance in Africa that I have organised together with Rutger Kremers during our internship at the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
