About Gacaca Courts

In 2002, Rwanda’s traditional Gacaca courts were revived as a way to process the millions of criminal cases that arose following the 1994 Genocide against the Tutsi. In total, 1,958,634 genocide related cases were tried through Gacaca. The courts are credited with laying the foundation for peace, reconciliation and unity in Rwanda. The Gacaca courts officially finished their work in June 2012.
