Becoming Rwandan

Education, Reconciliation, and the Making of a Post-Genocide Citizen

Rutgers University Press 2019

In Becoming Rwandan: Education, Reconciliation and the Making of a Post-Genocide Citizen (Rutgers UP, 2020)S.

She is assistant professor of international and comparative education and the director of the George Clement Bond Center for African Education at Teacher’s College, Columbia University.
