Is ‘tradition’ the solution? Lessons from Rwanda’s gacaca courts for justice and reconciliation after mass violence
No 3, IOB Analyses & Policy Briefs from Universiteit Antwerpen, Institute of Development Policy (IOB)
Over the past years, there has been an increasing attention for the use of tradition-based or home-grown justice and reconciliation mechanisms in the aftermath of violent conflict. The Rwandan gacaca court system is often evoked in this global trend. The gacaca courts operated nationwide between 2005 and 2012. This policy briefing summarizes major findings and policy recommendations based on extensive field research conducted during these years.
