Inside Rwanda's Gacaca Courts: Seeking Justice after Genocide

Bert Ingelaere (University of Antwerp), Inside Rwanda's Gacaca Courts: Seeking Justice after Genocide (University of Wisconsin Press, 2016).


"After the 1994 genocide in Rwanda, victims, perpetrators, and the country as a whole struggled to deal with the legacy of the mass violence. The government responded by creating a new version of a traditional grassroots justice system called gacaca. Bert Ingelaere, based on his observation of two thousand gacaca trials, offers a comprehensive assessment of what these courts set out to do, how they worked, what they achieved, what they did not achieve, and how they affected Rwandan society."
