Chapter Summary

The main question addressed in this chapter is: what are the lessons to be drawn from the genocides in Rwanda, Srebrenica and Darfur? This chapter on Rwanda is also based on the study published in The Failure to Prevent Genocide in Rwanda: The Role of Bystanders, published in 2007. The Srebrenica is based on the study published in 2008, The Role of Bystanders in Rwanda and Srebrenica: Lessons Learned. Darfur is based on ongoing research into early warning and early action in the period 2003-2010. The dissolution of Yugoslavia at the end of the nineties has led to many wars of separation. In Rwanda most peace-keepers were withdrawn after the killing of the ten Belgium peace-keepers. In Srebrenica military action was cancelled over the fear of killing Dutch peace-keepers. In the ROE for UNAMID of September 2007, the use of force, detention and searches have been outlined.
