    The aim of this policy brief is to describe current and historical conflicts over rights to land and natural resources within and surrounding protected areas in Rwanda. We examine the roots of contested claims between citizens and the State and offer some potential avenues for resolving these conflicts in ways that consider both the priorities of the Government of Rwanda and the rights of local communities that depend on protected area resources.

    for returnees in Rwanda, and the impacts of land access
    policies in the post-conflict period. It also seeks to
    understand better the roles international humanitarian
    agencies and NGOs have played, and how their performance
    can be improved. It is not suggested that Rwanda is typical,
