Burundi's political life is dominated by a double issue: on the one hand, the country's need for democratization and modernizing socio-economic structures; on the other, the problem of antagonism that opposes Tutsis and Hutus in the seizure of power. This rivalry has been reflected, in recent years, in serious ethnic clashes, thousands of deaths and tens of thousands of refugees.
