Sanctions, Justifications and Reactions: The Case of the Regional Initiative in Burundi

  • Nina Wilén


In this chapter attention is turned towards the discourses related to the sanctions imposed on Burundi during the internal conflict between 1996 and 1999. As with the previous chapter, this will attempt to integrate theory with practice by analysing the discourses through the theoretical framework presented in Chapter 2. The objective of this chapter is to examine the texts and discourses preceding and following the regional imposition of sanctions on Burundi. Who imposed the sanctions? In what sort of context, and with what justifications were they imposed?
