SAIIA Policy Briefing 139, June 2015 
The 20th commemoration of the Rwandan genocide this year offers an apt opportunity to reflect on how far Africa has come in preventing a reoccurrence of such a tragedy.
A new book released by the South African Institute of International Affairs and published by Jacana Media examines the governance success stories of a number of African states. Entitled "African Solutions: Best Practices from the African Peer Review Mechanism", the book is the outcome of research into the policies, programmes and experiences identified as "best practices" from the first 12 countries that published Country Review Reports (CRRs) under the African Peer Review Mechanism (APRM).

In April 2011, in the midst of upheavals and revolutions in the Middle East and North Africa, Rwandans commemorate the seventeenth anniversary of the Rwandan genocide - a period of 100 days during which over a million Rwandans were slaughtered. Although the country has made significant gains in reforming its socio-economic landscape and achieving increased gender parity, many observers argue that this has come at the expense of core political freedoms.
This workshop will consider the political economy of regional integration initiatives in Southern Africa, including what is driving the various processes (SACU, SADC and the Africa Free Trade Zone).  It will seek to deepen understanding of the factors that influence regional integration processes, such as the activities of the private sector, governance structures and the alignment with domestic priorities.

The African Peer Review Mechanism (APRM) aims to promote 'good governance' in Africa, through systematic reviews of a state's governance practices and subsequent recommendations, made by the APRM's Panel of Eminent Persons in each report, on how to improve them.

While South Africans danced in the streets in 1994, Rwandans were hunting down and killing their neighbours. Ten years on, Luleka Mangquku finds the genocide still haunting the country.

On 12-13 September 2006, SAIIA hosted a major international conference on the African Peer Review Mechanism (APRM) in Muldersdrift, Johannesburg. The conference – entitled APRM Lessons Learned: A Workshop for Civil Society, Practitioners and Researchers – assessed how the APRM has unfolded in Ghana, Kenya, Rwanda, Mauritius and South Africa.

eAfrica Volume 2, July 2004 IN THE 10 years that Rwanda's ruling party, the Rwandese Patriotic Front (RPF), has been in power, it has done much to portray itself as the party for all the country's people. It is an illusion that no one believes, but that everyone - Rwandans and observing foreigners alike - seems willing to accept.
