Since 1966 Burundi has been a republic in which coups d’état and constitutions have taken place. After a long situation of instability caused by continuous civil clashes between the Hutu and Tutsi ethnic groups, in 1998 the first step towards pacification was taken with the constitution of the Transitional National Assembly. In 2001, the agreement for the formation of a transitional government became operational. The Constitution of 2005 establishes that 60% of the institutional powers are entrusted to the Hutus and 40% to the Tutsis. The members of the Parliament, made up of the National Assembly and the Senate, are elected by universal suffrage for 5 years; the Parliament elects the President of the Republic who is also head of the Government with a 5-year term. The judicial system is based on German and Belgian law; the Supreme Court, the Court of Appeal and a court of first instance are located in Bujumbura, while the provincial courts are distributed in the provinces. The death penalty is in effect. Given the unstable situation in Burundi, there is no precise picture of the country’s armed forces; UNU forces are present. School education was initiated by missionaries in the colonial period. However, the institutional situation remains unstable due to the ongoing creeping civil war between the Hutu and Tutsi ethnic groups. Education is free and primary education lasting 6 years from 7 years of age is compulsory; the secondary one, which is optional, includes two cycles, the first of 4 years, the second of variable duration based on the chosen address.

Burundi is located close to the fracture line of the Rift Valley, which borders the country in the W at the furrow of the Rusizi River and the northeastern shore of Lake Tanganyika, which Burundi overlooks for 120 km with a largely high and rocky coast. From the narrow flat belt along the Rusizi, whose course marks the border with the Democratic Republic of Congo, the territory rises in a region of alteterre; these are dominated from N to S by a mountain range high on average 2000 m whose origin is linked to the same tectonic phenomena that presided over the formation of the Rift Valley. This chain yields to the E to a series of Savannah highlands, deeply engraved by various valley furrows that descend towards the NE to Lake Victoria. § The hydrographic system of Burundi pays tribute to both the Congolese and the Nilotic basins: the former is controlled by various tributaries of Lake Tanganyika which through the Lukuga emissary gives a significant contribution to the Lualaba river, considered the extreme source of the Congo river; to the second through the Luvironza, the southernmost spring branch of the Nile. § Although Burundi is located in the middle of the equatorial area, the altitude mitigates the climate, which has temperatures everywhere that are not excessive except in the Rusizi valley, where the annual average is around 23-25 ​​ºC, while it is 17 ºC in the area. mountainous and reaches 20 ºC on the highlands.
