Assessing the Rwanda experiment: Popular perceptions of Gacaca in its final phase

This article assesses ordinary Rwandans’ attitudes towards gacaca to better understand this institution’s contribution. The majority of survey participants expressed support in response to more global questions, but dissatisfaction with gacaca in response to more specific questions, including regarding security and the credibility of confessions. Rather than dismiss positive global assessments, it suggests that divergent attitudes show popular support for the idea of gacaca and aspirations for its legacy, but dissatisfaction with its actual operation.
