The role of the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda in building sustainable peace / by Evelyne Andrew Batamuliza.
The International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda (ICTR) is an international court established in November 1994 by the United Nations Security Council after the Rwandan Genocide of April-July 1994. The ICTR own-stated, dual purpose is to prosecute persons responsible for Genocide and other serious violations of International Humanitarian Law and to contribute to the process of national reconciliation in Rwanda, and to the maintenance of peace in the African Great Lakes region. The purpose of this research project is to determine if, how, and to what extent activities carried out, to date, by the ICTR have contributed, from the perspective of different stakeholders, to national reconciliation and peacebuilding in post-Genocide Rwanda, and in the greater African Great Lakes region. Since its establishment the ICTR has made real achievements in the advancement of International Criminal Justice and the prosecution of Genocide perpetrators however, with respect to the national reconciliation and peacebuilding objective, less has been written and much less may have been achieved. This research will argue that peacebuilding successes have fallen short. Peacebuilding requires a long-term and holistic exercise and it is questionable whether this essential aspect has ever been adequately identified and addressed by the Tribunal.
