Genocide in Rwanda and Burundi

Christian gacaca and Official gacaca in Post-genocide Rwanda. In October , a think tank of the Rwandan state proposed the establishment of gacaca jurisdictions - popular courts charged with judging the people involved in the genocide against the Tutsi. Lesser known is the Christian gacaca, a conflict resolution mechanism, also inspired by the traditional gacaca, which was established during the same period by the Catholic Church of Rwanda as part of the synodal process leading to the celebration of the Year Jubilee. This essay describes, on the basis of archival documents and oral testimonies, the genesis of the Christian gacaca and examines how it related to the official gacaca.

Or about religious impulses: belief, tradition, spiritualism, transcendence and ethical systems linked to some notion of divinity? Are we talking about a communal phenomenon or an individual matter? As for genocide, given the scope of this volume, I follow the legal definition associated with Raphael Lemkin and the United Nations Convention, 1 but I also consider some cases of state-sponsored, extreme violence that are not legally and formally genocide or have not been widely acknowledged as such.

Although Rwanda is among the most Christian countries in Africa, in the genocide, church buildings became the primary killing grounds. To explain why so many Christians participated in the violence, this book looks at the history of Christian engagement in Rwanda and then turns to a rich body of original national- and local-level research to argue that Rwanda's churches have consistently allied themselves with the state and played ethnic politics.
