MAMDANI WHEN VICTIMS BECOME KILLERS PDF

Underlying his statement is the realization that, though ordered by a minority of state functionaries, the slaughter was performed by hundreds of thousands of ordinary citizens, including even judges, human rights activists, and doctors, nurses, priests, friends, and spouses of the victims. Indeed, it is its very popularity that makes the Rwandan genocide so unthinkable. He coaxes to the surface the historical, geographical, and political forces that made it possible for so many Hutu to turn so brutally on their neighbors. He finds answers in the nature of political identities generated during colonialism, in the failures of the nationalist revolution to transcend these identities, and in regional demographic and political currents that reach well beyond Rwanda. There have been few attempts to explain the Rwandan horror, and none has succeeded so well as this one.

When victims become killers : colonialism, nativism, and the genocide in Rwanda

Post-colonial politics in Rwandan were characterized by zero sum contests for power, fought along polarized racial lines. Mamdani saw the polarization and politicization of Hutu and Tutsi identities as a necessary condition for the catastrophic dehumanization [2] in which the genocide occurred. In this winner-take-all political environment, losing groups [3] had little recourse but to flee their country and take refuge in neighbouring states. Those members of the losing groups who fled to neighbouring countries became refugees who struggled in vain to assimilate in their adopted society. Members of the losing group who stayed were physically vulnerable due to their low status within the society.
