Reconstruction and authority in Eritrea and Rwanda

Posted on August 3, 2011. Filed under: Rwanda |

In April, the Africa Research Institute in London released this short, but insightful Briefing Note.

Princes’ Progress: Reconstruction and authority in Eritrea and Rwanda provides an interesting comparison between two of Africa’s ‘smallest and poorest states’, which both also ‘exert disproportionate influence over regional security’. However, despite some similarieis, Eritrean president Isaias Afwerki has been far less successful in attracting international aid and support from donors, and often stands ‘accused of transforming Eritrea into a rogue, pariah state’. Comparatively, the leadership of Rwandan president Paul Kagame has been ‘championed as “visionary”’ by some.
