Democratisation in Rwanda

By Kursdeltaker on February 14, 2016 7:22 pm

Another sketch. Old idea. From my friend Torstein's old Master thesis about civil society and democratisation in Rwanda.This is the beginning of the conclusion. Recorded on a small laptop.

Original lyrics:

The point of departure for this thesis was the persistent elitist nature of African politics and
the sustained belief in democracy promotion circles in civil society support as a tool to
promote democratisation. Focusing on the case of Rwanda, the study has been able to identify
key dynamics in the interplay of donors, civil society and state power that dictate the outcome
in terms of democratisation.
Overall, there are few indications that donor support to civil society in the period 2000 – 2010
has contributed to democratisation in Rwanda. This holds true whether one applies a liberal,
minimalist definition of democratisation characterised by political liberalisation within the
edifice of formal institutions, or more substantive definitions characterised by the extension of
citizenship and citizens‟ rights
