Constitution of the Republic of Rwanda
This month, Rwanda is updated with a brand new Introductory Note—by Tom Mulisa, Lecturer of Constitutional law, International Human Rights Law and Good Governance, School of Law, University of Rwanda—that covers Rwanda’s unique social and pre-constitutional history, the colonial period, the events that led up to the civil war in 1990 and the 1994 Tutsi genocide, the transitional period, and the post-genocide reconstruction period, culminating in the post-genocide Constitution of 2003. The commentary describes the fundamental principles and values of the Constitution, the protection of fundamental rights, the separation of powers, decentralization, the reception of international law into the Rwandan legal order, and its integration in the region. The update includes the latest amended Constitution of the Republic of Rwanda, 2003 (as Amended to 2010), and a Select Bibliography provides tools for further research.
