Rwanda: Case Studies

Justice Compromised:The Legacy of Rwanda’s Community-Based Gacaca Courts

The four case studies in this document are taken from Human Rights Watch's report Justice Compromised: The Legacy of Rwanda's Community-Based Gacaca Courts, published on May 31, 2011 and should be read in conjunction with that report.

These cases have been selected because they illustrate a range of human rights concerns observed by Human Rights Watch during gacaca trials in different parts of Rwanda. Numerous other cases are cited in the full report.
