IDMC Annual report 2014

From the director

Mr. Gasana, the organ’s incoming President, noted that Rwanda’s presidency of the Security Council this month was all the more “special” as the country celebrated its twentieth anniversary of liberation and marked the day when the Rwandan Patriotic Front took control of Kigali to stop the genocide.
