"An Introduction to the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda and its Impact on the Rule of Law in Rwanda"
This lecture focuses on the evolving relationship between Rwanda and the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda (“ICTR”) over the past two decades and how that relationship has led to judicial reform in Rwanda. The lecture will provide a brief overview of the Rwandan legal system in the wake of the genocide and focus on how the judicial decisions rendered by the ICTR impacted legislative reform in Rwanda and strengthened the national court system to ensure the prosecution of those offenders that did not fall within the ICTR’s mandate.
