Thesis (in French) available from UofO here.
Pierre-Anne worked with rice growing cooperatives in Gitarama, Rwanda from February until June 2011. Her Thesis investigated the rhetorical claims of inclusiveness and equal participation on which the cooperatives were based. Her findings, based on individual interviews with 27 farmers, as well as with cooperative leaders, NGO, and government officials, depict the boundaries of “participatory” development in the Rwandan context.
