Verdict still out on Rwanda’s gacaca courts

Informal trials, established to mete out justice and foster reconciliation, are closed amid debate.

    After ten years of controversial hearings, Rwanda has closed its "gacaca" courts the local, informal trials that were established to deal out justice to people accused of being involved in the genocide. 

    Over the years, observers have tried to determine if the unprecedented approach to reconciliation has helped, or hindered, Rwanda’s recovery.
