Overpopulation and war: the example of Rwanda



Overpopulation and war: the example of Rwanda



Bulletin de la Societe Languedocienne de Geographie 30(1-2): 33-55



The author examines the extent to which the recent events in Rwanda, including the civil war and the attempts at genocide, are related to overpopulation. In particular, three questions are considered: under what circumstances can reasonable people arrive at a situation in which they can participate in collective suicidal behavior? Do such crises arise from lack of resources, or failure to make the best use of the resources that do exist? Are such events part of a global conflict between liberal societies and societies governed by extremist idealists?
