The establishment of a power–sharing transitional government in November 2001 including ethnic Hutu and Tutsi representation, was seen by local and international observers as a positive step to solve the conflict.

Profile of Internal Displacement: Burundi

Despite hope of political stabilization in Burundi, there is still no cease-fire between the government and two of a number of rebel groups operating in Burundi. About 633,000 people are internally displaced, both in sites and dispersed throughout the country-side, out of a total population of 6.65 million (UN OCHA 12 October 2001).

Profile of Internal Displacement: Burundi

Large-scale political and communal violence has plagued Burundi since 1993, following the assassination of President Melchior Ndadaye. The current President, Major Buyoya, took power in a military coup in 1996. In response to the coup, governments of neighboring states imposed an economic embargo. The embargo was lifted in January 1999, after Buyoya agreed to a power sharing agreement in the National Assembly and began negotiations for a peace settlement with opposing parties and armed opposition groups.
