Abstract

A series of two articles in Japanese that analyze major challenges to humanitarian assistance in post-genocide Rwanda and present alternative methods and discourses to meet the challenges. The ethics of aid in the contest of extreme social inequity, some exacerbated by international aid, is discussed. These articles were written based on the author's practical experience in Rwanda, where he served as an NGO representative. (An extended English summary attached.)
