to the description provided in the chapters on Butare in Leave None to Tell ( Guichaoua, 2005 ). Jean-Paul Kimonyo’s Rwanda’s Popular Genocide explores how the genocide was carried out in several additional local communities based on his own original research, including adding additional detail on Butare ( Kimonyo, 2016 ). Still others provide greater detail on the failures of international intervention. Michael Barnett provides insight into the UN’s failures based on his perspective working in New York at the time ( Barnett, 2003 ), while Romeo Dallaire

international intervention. Comparative anthropology of the kind we develop here has the potential to detect and analyse ways of thought and practice and situate them in the context of both localised and world-historical events, contexts, histories and discourses ( Détienne, 2009 : 61). Community engagement is commonly regarded as the axis on which to secure access and trust in humanitarian emergencies. However, its implementation remains an open debate. Far away

Global health and humanitarian institutions must recognise the political significance of local popular critiques of international interventions, situating them in legacies of colonialism and postcolonial political and economic inequality. Fine-grained, contextual research on the everyday politics of biomedical ethics is crucial and timely, not only in DRC where

earlier the United Nations and the ‘international community’ had been involved and had significantly failed to stop the conflict. I think that there is a sort of a reactive dimension which has been evoked later on in international interventions in Africa in relation to Somalia and Rwanda, for example. Namely that once the international community fails in one part of Africa, it tends to neglect the next conflict usually with disastrous consequences. Do you think there’s an

Jenny H. Peterson

commitment to a wider reform agenda such as facilitating global trade, international economic concerns are clearly central to understanding international intervention in the territory. If analysis of a war economy involves understanding who profits from conflict and how, all of these issues become pertinent. The same can be said in terms of understanding the economic interests of regional actors. Despite being one of the poorest regions of the former Yugoslavia, Kosovo contains some of the largest mineral deposits in the region including zinc, lignite and coal. The Trepça
