Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

The genocide in Rwanda was based on two ethnic groups, the Hutu and the Tutsi. The population in the year 1994 was approximately seven million people. Rwanda's population was 85% Hutu, 14% Tutsi, and 1% TWA (a Pygmy tribe). Historically, the Tutsis had been the ruling class, so centuries of Hutu hatred toward the elitist minority had made politics a tense arena in Rwanda. The Hutus feared the minority and the Tutsi rule because of the populations increase in social, political and economic pressures. President Habyarimana increased divisions between the Tutsi and Hutus in the year of 1992. In the year of 1994, the Hutu extremists released their plots to vanquish the Tutsi population, violence struck immediately after President Habyarimana, a moderate Hutu, was shot down in a plane on April 6.

The positive contributions: provision of troops to strengthen the force in protecting loss of life,offering food ,shelter and clothing to the internally and externally displaced citizen.Relief food and temporary shelter were positive impacts

Negative contributions:They delayed to bring in troops hence most of citizen lost their life. International bodies were also inclined to one group of warrimg parties
