Africa Part One [electronic resource]: The Uncovered Continent

Throughout history, humanitarian military interventions have had mixed results. Colonial powers used the cover of humanitarian intervention to subjugate "savage" or "barbaric" cultures and "civilize" these countries through occupation. This episode examines the interventions in Somalia, Sudan, Liberia, and Rwanda, and their impacts on human rights. Also, reports from Tajikistan, Iraq, and South Africa look at the lasting affects of intervention. Finally, a report on a human rights activist in Zaire (now Democratic Republic of Congo), and his NGO's work to end decades of dictatorial rule.
