Florence Nasamaza

Florence Nasamaza

Since 2015, Florence has worked with traditional, religious and community leaders to promote critical thinking among communities about the threat of violent extremism and strengthen local understanding of radicalisation in ungoverned spaces and border areas in the Great Lakes Region, Africa. She has facilitated mediation processes between genocide survivors and perpetrators in order to restore the social fabric, to recreate families, to repair communities, and to rebuild a unified nation in the aftermath of the genocide against Tutsi in Rwanda. Community mediation discourses were organised, using a cultural approach to resolving conflicts between the community of survivors and perpetrators in Rwanda and conflicting communities in the Great Lakes Region.
