Senior Fellow and Professional Lecturer Noam Schimmel‘s latest article “A Postcolonial Reflection on the Rwandan Genocide Against the Tutsi and Statement of Solidarity with its Survivors” has been published in the Journal of Victimology and Victim Justice.
In the article, Noam reflects on the genocide against the Tutsi in the context of Belgium’s colonization of Rwanda. “The Belgian government ruled Rwanda particularly catastrophically and ruthlessly,” Noam writes. “They built upon Germany’s racist policies in Rwanda, and, by cultivating division and hate in Rwandan society; employing a divide and conquer strategy of invasion, conquest, discrimination and persecution, helped lay the groundwork for mass murder and genocide.”
