Speaking Out: Rwanda


This podcast is adapted from “The Hunting and Killing of Rwandan Refugees in Zaire-Congo: 1996-1997” a case study in Médecins Sans Frontières / Doctors Without Borders (MSF) "Speaking Out" series.

In eight episodes, it investigates MSF's experience in the aftermath of the 1994 Rwandan Tutsi genocide, and in particular, with the impact on local populations and refugees living in the Democratic Republic of Congo (formerly Zaire).

The series looks at the constraints, questions, and dilemmas faced by MSF teams attempting to bring relief to Rwandan refugees and local people.

The Speaking Out Case Studies

The Speaking Out Case Studies are a series of studies that openly examine and analyse MSF's actions and decision-making processes during crises, that have led MSF to speak out.

These case studies were originally designed as an educational tool and only available to associative members of the organisation. With the hope of broadening their educational scope, the studies are now being made available in French and English to the public for free.
