dc.description.abstract This paper asserts that constructively remembering past atrocities is central to the formation of a lasting, multi-faceted peace in post-genocide societies. The Rwandan case-study first illustrates the dynamics of a society affected by genocide, as well as critically analyzes the integrity of its peace. Secondly, the role of collective memory in reconciliation is discussed at length, including the dangers of implying "forgive and forget" principles within a reconstruction context. The final portion of the paper suggests three applications with which to apply the needs of a collective memory in reconciliation: 1.) validating track II diplomacy; 2.) supporting the processes of truth commissions; and 3.) shaping reconstruction for reconciliation. In order to work toward a lasting peace, it is essential that Rwanda -- as well as other post-genocide societies -- remember the past in a way which leads to restoration. en
