Democratisation and political governance under President Kagame

SEMINAR – STOCKHOLM 23 MAY

As the world gathers for the World Economic Forum in Kigali, Rwanda’s recent record of developmental progress and constitutional amendments raises questions about the links between everyday governance and inclusive political systems: What does the future hold for Rwanda in terms of inclusive governance and democratization? What does the constitutional amendment imply for Rwanda's status as a model for development? 

Welcome to a seminar for scholars, policy makers, development workers and political actors, arranged by the Nordic Africa Institute in collaboration with the Embassy of the Republic of Rwanda in Sweden and members of the Swedish Parliament’s Committee on Foreign Affairs.

Key note speakers are Anastase Shyaka , CEO of the Rwanda Governance Board, and  Molly Sundberg, Departement of Cultural Anthropology, Uppsala University. Closing words by Christine Nkulikiyinka, Ambassador of the Republic of Rwanda in Sweden.  Moderator is Jesper Bjarnesen, Senior Researcher at the Nordic Africa Institute.
