Abstract [en]

Theories of reconciliation is currently earning a larger stage in efforts to establish sustainable peace. This thesis elaborates on the ongoing processes of political reconciliation in Bosnia-Herzegovina and Rwanda, and it is an empirical test of Kjell-Åke Nordquist’s theory of what is required to reach the goal of political reconciliation. The respective countries are examined through the criteria and conditions which Nordquist suggests to be the most important.  

The main questions regard the reconciliatory processes within the two countries since the end of their respective civil wars in the first half of the 1990’s, and what similarities and differences in reconciliatory development that has occurred between the states since then.

The thesis starts with an introductory chapter, followed by chosen method and theory. It depicts the historical background and then goes on to answer the stated questions in two chapters and is finally summarized in a conclusion.

The main finding is that both Bosnia-Herzegovina and Rwanda still struggle with tensions along ethnic lines and that very little political reconciliation has taken place on a national level.
