Welcome note

We see the Centre for Conflict Management (CCM) as a bridge between research findings and policy making inspiration regarding peace and conflict studies in the African Great Lakes

Region. Indeed, the Great Lakes Region in Central Africa shares a lot as far as sustainable peace building is concerned. Though located Rwanda and founded on the Rwandan successful stories of post-genocide reconstruction, the Centre for Conflict Management of the National University of Rwanda strives to expand its research and teaching activities to the whole region for the benefit of the population whose main need is to live in peace and security.

It is within that context that this website was provided, so that CCM’s research findings and teaching and learning activities can be disseminated and shared with the audience far from BUTARE town. We thus invite all of you to take advantage of this tool and get involved in CCM programs. Your comments and suggestions in our online guest book will be highly valued for the betterment of the centre’s services. You are all welcome.
