However, having different courts for one and the same situation has had its own limitations. One of these issues is the legal and practical disparities that exist between the ad hoc International Tribunal and national justice mechanisms in the process of prosecuting perpetrators, such as the unequal treatment of the accused. This book therefore attempts to show these discrepancies and their impact on the process of accountability and reconciliation. Thus, this book analyses the relationship between the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda, national courts and Gacaca in prosecution of genocide suspects as well as lessons from the adopted ‘multifaceted approaches’ to deal with the crime of genocide.
