The collection of essays published in this first of two volumes tries to describe and analyse the nature and depth of the "home grown solutions" as presented in post-genocide Rwanda. The volume deals with: community work (umuganda), Gacaca courts, community mediators (abunzi), solidarity work (Ubudehe), performance contract (imihigo) and cow donation (girinka munyarwanda). The volume also extended research on innovative areas including managing wounded memory in a post-genocide context, reconciliation and healing, family, language and culture as factors of social cohesion.
