Example text

Ten percent of the respondents indicate clearly that they try to negotiate with officials to avoid paying bribes or to reduce the price. A survey of households, businesses, and public officials in Romania conducted in early 2,000 emphasizes the quid pro quo between officials and citizens. 25 Likewise, in the educational field, bribes are a determining factor in getting children placed in school and in getting better grades. Among public officials, 37 percent said they were offered small bribes over the last 12 months; 11 percent said they were offered expensive gifts or bribes.

Instead they organized a “Hutu Power” movement, using media to foment fear that the Tutsi intended to subjugate or kill Hutu, and arming militias to defend against this threat. They coopted the domestic opposition parties by convincing them that the rebels sought Tutsi hegemony, an impression reinforced by the rebels’ military offensive of February 1993 and by Tutsi violence against Hutu in neighboring Burundi following the assassination of that state’s first Hutu president in October 1993. When the opposition parties switched their allegiance to the regime, the Tutsi rebels realized that they no longer would control the transitional government if implemented and so lacked a peaceful path to power.

19 He does not, however, connect these points to warn of the gravest danger of all: that mediator attempts at ripening may so threaten a party’s vital interests that it responds with massive, even genocidal escalation against its opponent. This occurred twice in the 1990s—in Rwanda and Kosovo. ) For the first three years of the war, the rebels grew in relative strength. But each time the rebels launched an offensive, France intervened to enable Rwanda’s Hutu regime to fight them off. The war was stalemated, and some 2,000 Rwandan civilians already had been killed, but initial peace negotiations were insincere because neither side hurt very much nor saw a looming catastrophe.
