In spite of the declared success of the reconciliation process by the Kagame regime, a success widely echoed by the international community, reconciliation as measured by social cohesion and collective memory has not occurred in Rwanda following the 1994 genocide. Although transitional justice mechanisms were put into place on international, national, and local scales to address the large-scale human rights violations that took place, they had a limited effect on social cohesion and collective memory in Rwanda, and therefore on reconciliation more broadly.
