The people of the United States benefited the most from the Panama Canal because of its success and technology research increase. The Panama Canal also increased the transportation issues, which were the traveling time and the amount of resources that could be trade.

The poor classes, or the laborers on the other hand, wanted more rights as citizens and were treated poorly by the government, which made them angry and fought for independence.

The Hutu-Tutsi dichotomy has long been (and still remains) a major source of instability in the Great Lakes Region. More specifically, in Rwanda memories of the 1994 genocide are still visible in contemporary politics. Building on this, this paper explores the role played by ethnicity during the Rwandan genocide. Addressing this question matters if we are to understand how the current Tutsi-led regime of Paul Kagame (in power since the end of the genocide) plays upon the notion of ‘ethnic reconciliation’ to justify his monopoly of power . Therefore, in answering the question, the paper will argue that ethnicity – here intended as a ‘subjective belief in common descent’ allegedly ‘having genetic foundations’ – deserves careful consideration
