Before and after the 1994 genocide in Rwanda, and with ongoing civil wars in Burundi and DRC, a great amount of written documents were produced in the Great African Lakes region, but without any record or storage. The International Documentation Network on the Great African Lakes Region was born in 1994, at the initiative of Africanist scholars who were willing to keep track of, and make public, unpublished documents about this troubled part of Africa – so-called “grey literature”, i.e. texts from local NGOs, political parties, researchers, scholars, local press, individuals etc., most of them produced between 1990 and 2000.
