Brotchner will discuss the progress that Rwanda has made in economic and social reconciliation since the 1994 genocide and how the nation has transformed itself into one of Africa's most promising countries. He will also discuss the role of Rwanda's universities in promoting the country's transition from an agriculture-based economy to a knowledge-based economy.
