Причины гражданской войны 1990—1994 гг. в трактовке руандийской учебной литературы по истории
The article discusses the interpretation of national history in the Rwandan history schoolbooks and curricula of the mid-2000s — late 2010s. The author analyses the way of describing the causes of the civil war of 1990—1994, a key issue in the twenty-five year debates about the main culprits of the 1994 genocide. The study shows that despite the joint US-Rwandan research team’s attempt in 2006 to develop a conceptual framework for interpreting national history in secondary schools, based on a critical evaluation of past events, the further history curriculum development was subordinated to the Rwandan politics of memory, to the RPF government’s desire to impose its version of national history on society in order to achieve “national reconciliation”.
