Here are some great videos and other resources on genocide, bosnia, rwanda, darfur, congo, etc. Especially worth watching is the Sudan conflict explained in 10 minutes! I showed these in my 10th grade class and we discussed them, but I thought I should share.

Delegates of the African caucus,
Congo would like to remember that the main causes to the Civil War in Congo were the Rwandan genocide refugees who have been invading the eastern boarders of the Congolese country. But, in relation to Rwanda's resolution, the Democratic Republic of Congo gives total support for its question of, since they want to reconstruct Rwanda from damages caused by the genocide. By doing such things, it wont only help Rwanda but also Congo, since by providing support for the Rwandan population and country, it will indirectly improve the DRC's actual situation, due to the fact that it may diminish the amount of refugees in the country's boarder and that it may improve the Rwandan's population situation, enabling them to invade the DRC.

The UNHCR delegate would like to add that Congo completely encourages the initiatives of important African leaders, including the DRC President Joseph Kabila for one, Uganda’s President Yoweri Museveni, Rwanda’s President Paul Kagame, Pierre Nkurunziza of Burundi, and Foreign Affairs Minister Moses Wetangula, who have all been fighting for further progress in peace attempts in the past years. It is important to realize how when nations step up their efforts together to fight for a righteous cause, results are definitely more effective, yet peace attempts need to be built piece by piece and progression is only acquired step by step. Yes, the resfugee mess is still appalling, but initiatives such as these are what the world needs in crises this harsh. Joint efforts are the appropriate approach on both the humanitarian situation in Rwanda and the DRC, so the UN must encourage these leaders.

The delegate of Rwanda agrees with the Congo delegate,

and peace is our main priority, as stated, it takes more then one nation to obtain peace, and therefore Rwanda asks for the support of all nations, By reconstruction of these damaged sites, Congo will be able to rid itself of their current problem as well... Basically, this resolutions helps all nations.

Rwandan Delegation,

North Korea regrets the tragic situation in Rwanda. Unfortunately, North Korea cannot help economically as all of our funds MUST go to North Korea itself. However, North Korea will support your country in political terms.

North Korean Delegate,
Tyler Simpson

Here's another useful video
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VwyGXg5K6II&feature=related

by the way, take a look at the accords cited in this video and its guidelines
It can help rwandan delegation with ideas for the resolution (what went wrong in the accords that shall not be in your reso, and what went well in it, which could be included), and to other delegations this is useful as well in order to make ammendments.

A fifteen year fight that has to come to a complete ending. South Africa is totally in favor of ending the problem that has destroyed many peoples lives and families. Now is the best time to end it
