OPIL:Rwandan Genocide Resources

April 3, 2019

April 7th 2019 marks 25 years since the outbreak of the genocide in Rwanda, during which 800,000 to one million people were systematically killed in the span of 100 days. For the 100-day anniversary period (ending 16 July 2019) we have made materials relating to the Rwandan Genocide and its impact on the international framework of law and tribunals publicly available to read and share. This includes background and historical information on the genocide, legal definitions of the crimes committed, and case reports on the prosecutions.
