Abstract

Considering the magnitude of rape and other sexual crimes perpetrated during the Rwandan genocide, gender crimes prosecutions at the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda (ICTR) have been inadequate so far. Nonetheless, the ICTR case law must be commended for the impulse given, with and after Akayesu, to the criminalization and punishment of gender-related violence. This paper points to the achievements of the ICTR case law in this respect.

Keywords: adolescents, psychological symptoms, psychosocial factors, school, sexual harassment
