As the 20th anniversary of the outbreak of the Rwandan genocide approaches, podcast host Andrew Thompson speaks with Elisabeth King on her new book, From Classrooms to Conflict in Rwanda. After sharing some historical context, Dr. King explores the way in which educational structures and content contributed to the rise of civil tensions in Rwanda in the lead-up to the genocide. In addition to touching on research challenges and policy implications, the conversation closes by examining the political and human rights conditions present in Rwanda today.
