Abstract

The 1994 genocide against the Tutsi in Rwanda left the country devastated with no infrastructure, crime rampant, and no developed policing strategy. Yet just twenty one years later on looking at Gallup’s Global Law and Order 2015 report conducted by interviewing over 142,000 individuals in 141 countries with at least 1,000 participants from each country, Rwanda is listed at joint 21st position worldwide in terms of overall law and order at 80% (5 places higher than the UK on 79%), including joint 4th position overall (along with Indonesia and Spain) for citizen perceived safety walking at night (on 85%) behind only Hong Kong, Singapore, and Norway. This poster looks at how such incredible results have been achieved in such a short space of time.
