International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda (ICTR)

The UN genocide tribunal in Rwanda

All our articles on the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda (ICTR). Located in Arusha, Tanzania, it was active from 1995 to 2015 with the main objective of prosecuting genocide acts in Rwanda and neighboring states. We examine emblematic cases such as the trial - eventually aborted - of Félicien Kabuga, a suspected financier of the genocide, and the case of Fulgence Kayishema, the last Rwandan fugitive of the ICTR. These cases illustrate the challenges and stakes of 30 years of international justice since the genocide in Rwanda in 1994. Our experts' and correspondents' work analyse the judicial outcome of the ICTR and its impact on the search for truth and justice on the last genocide of the 20th century, still relevant today.
