Rwanda's Troubled Gacaca Courts
C. Le Mon
Human Rights Brief, Vol. 14, No. 2, p. 16, Winter 2007
Examines the gacaca courts, a modified version of a traditional Rwandan justice institution, as a response to that country's genocide, evaluating not only the ability of the gacaca courts to satisfy standard criteria of effective transitional justice, but also whether the goals set out for the gacaca courts help or hinder Rwanda's goal of peaceful transition.
