Judi Rever is a freelance journalist based in Montreal. She has published stories on Rwanda in Canada’s leading newspaper The Globe and Mail, and in Digital Journal, Foreign Policy Journal, Le Monde Diplomatique, Humanosphere, AFP and The Africa Report. She co-authored a story on Rwandan assassination plots which was the one of the Globe and Mail’s biggest stories of 2014. She researched and co-wrote another story with the Globe’s journalist Geoffrey York on the slaughter of two Canadian priests by Paul Kagame’s intelligence network in the aftermath of the genocide. From 1998 until 2002 Rever worked as a correspondent and editor for Agence France-Presse, reporting from Ivory Coast, Sierra Leone, Liberia, Burkina Faso, Ghana, Nigeria and the Middle East. She has also reported from the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and Rwanda for Radio France Internationale. In 1997, in the immediate aftermath of the overthrow of Zairean president Mobutu Sese Seko, she went to the DRC to interview Rwandan Hutu refugees in the Congolese jungle. She conducted an estimated 50 interviews with survivors of attacks by the Rwandan Patriotic Army. Over the last several years she has done interviews with hundreds of Rwandans in exile—former soldiers and families of victims—on crimes committed in Rwanda by the RPF during and after the genocide. She has also been named as a Country of Origin Information (COI) expert on Rwanda by the Rights in Exile Programme, which promotes the legal protection of refugees. The organization was founded by Barbara Harrell-Bond, a legal anthropologist and world expert in refugees. Harrell-Bond founded the Refugees Studies Centre at Oxford University, the world’s first institution for the study of refugees. Her current book, In Praise of Blood, will be published by Penguin Random House Canada.
