1. Introduction


International Alert is a 30-year old independent and international peacebuilding organization with headquarters in London and works with people who are directly affected by violent conflict to improve their living. We have been operating in Rwanda since 1996, strengthening reconciliation, reintegration and conflict management among people affected by conflicts and genocide against the Tutsi in the country.
