Over a decade after the establishment of the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda (ICTR), an assessment of its achievements with regard to its role in fostering reconciliation among Rwandans must be undertaken. The ICTR's activities have provided a setting for witnesses and victims of the genocide to testify before judicial authorities. However, persisting obstacles involving the nature of the conflict and ongoing instability in the country have hindered progress in efforts at national reconciliation, and addressing the issue of compensation for victims remains inadequate. The ICTR continues to play a crucial role in shedding light on the atrocities and endeavouring to raise awareness for victims’ issues at the international level.
