Improving the Performance of the Criminal Justice System in Rwanda in Managing Gender Based Violence Cases

This 2013 report from the Legal Aid Forum-Rwanda analyzes the challenges and problems faced by judicial sector personnel, including prosecutors, judges, and police officers, in the criminal prosecution of gender based violence crimes in Rwanda.  Drawing on data collected from interviews and focus groups, as well as statistical analysis, this report assesses the primary obstacles to effective prosecution and offers recommendations for improvement.  The report recommends a comprehensive set of guidelines be published to improve the knowledge and confidence of judicial sector personnel in the management of these cases.  At the institutional level, nearly all respondents cited a need to strengthen collaboration and exchange of information among GBV-related institutions and agencies.
