Genocide, citizenship and political identity crisis in postcolonial Africa: Rwanda as case study

This thesis is an analytical exploration of the root causes of the 1994 Rwandan genocide. It explains how Tutsi became non-indigenous Hamities and how Hutu became native indigenous, leaving the two populations to be identified along racial and ethnic lines. In 1933, the Belgians introduced identity cards which specified one’s ethnic affiliation, giving birth to political identities as Hutu and Tutsi ceased to become cultural identities and became political identities.
