Abstract

Since early precolonial time, on the territory of today's Rwanda and the other neighboring countries there weren't any kind of etnical diferenciation between the population. But, after the colonizers counqured those countries they created two main etnical groups, Hutus and Tutsis, and they put Tutsis in charge of the a country because of their perceived closer resemblance to Europeans. That culminated in 1994. when Rwanda was hit by terrible genocide in which more than a million people died, and more than two million people became refugees. After the genocide in Rwanda, the war moved into the DR Congo, where the conflict between the Rwandans and local population ensued. That was the bloodiest war since the Second World War. Today Rwanda has improved significantly, both economicaly and socially. There is a marked improvement in GDP per capita rate, higher literacy rate and a significant decline of death caused by diseases, such as AIDS.
