Landlocked in the Great Lakes region of East Africa, Burundi is one of the smallest countries in Africa. Though the country has now embarked on a peace process, it has been scarred by a civil war that began in 1994 and is perceived internationally to be ethnic in nature. Burundi’s human rights record is equally marked by its history of internal conflict, and the State has been widely criticised for not addressing the extensive rights violations that took place between 1962 and 2008.
