The United Nations Assistance Mission for Rwanda (UNAMIR) was a United Nations peacekeeping force that existed from 5 October 1993 to March 1996 during the Rwandan Civil War. UNAMIR's goal was to broker a peace deal between the Hutu-dominated Rwandan government and the predominantly-Tutsi Rwandan Patriotic Front (RPF) rebel group, and UNAMIR was unable to prevent the Rwandan Genocide due to its close adherence to the rules of engagement. UNAMIR allowed for the RPF to overthrow the government and stood idly by as the genocide and the ensuing Hutu refugee crisis occurred, and the mission was regarded as a failure.
