Chapter Summary

The role of a non-direct involved bystander state during the genocide is illustrated in this chapter, with the role of the Netherlands. The chapter focuses on the role of the Minister of Development Cooperation, Jan Pronk, who was very involved and often made visits to the area. He made contact with Paul Kagame and other leaders during the genocide in Rwanda and did his best to mediate between countries surrounding Rwanda to promote a cessation to the warfare. He also did his best to obtain financial backing from the European Union for an African peace-keeping mission in the area.
