Twenty years after the 1994 genocide, Rwandans are still troubled by what made the violence possible and how they can know it will not recur. This study uncovers how Rwandan visions of peace and modern nationhood concern not only political reform or economic development, but also transformations of the self. The aspiration to become "peaceful selves" finds expression in cultural ideas and everyday practices, in state and popular rhetoric. However, the question of what kind of person one ought to be is fraught with contradictions and raises difficult questions about the nature of post-genocide belonging and the moral order.
