Update on Rwanda: 20 years after the genocide

Twenty years after almost incomprehensible crimes occurred in Rwanda, the country has gone through both remarkable growth and an extensive accountability process related to the genocide. Professor Trahan shares her impressions from her recent field trip to Rwanda and discusses the three tiers of justice for the genocide:  the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda (ICTR), local domestic courts in Rwanda, and the traditional mechanism known as "Gacaca."  While remarkable progress has been achieved, there remain some troubling aspects to Rwanda's rebuilding: will its success remain a stable and enduring one?
