Rwanda

From 1924 to 1962, Rwanda and the neighbouring country of Burundi were mandate territories, before later being a trust territory of Belgium. This is why there is a considerable Rwandan community in our country, especially in Brussels. The Government of Flanders has little institutional cooperation with Rwanda as they opted to geographically concentrate their development cooperation in Southern Africa. Nevertheless, Flemish universities are active in Rwanda through funding from with the federal development cooperation.
