Post-Genocide Refugees’ Continued Refusal to Repatriate (1995–2017)



This chapter aims to examine why the majority of refugees have categorically refused to repatriate and why Rwandans continue to flee today. Based on Rogge’s three arguments on repatriation’s myths and realities—political–economic system, government’s attitude vis-à-vis refugee repatriation, and sources of information that refugees rely on when deciding their return—the following elements are analysed: the post-genocide political structure and President Kagame’s speeches as well as the Rwandan Government’s intentions and repatriation strategies.
