Drawing on the outcomes of the Conference, “Closing the Impunity Gap: Southern Africa’s Role in Securing Justice for the 1994 Rwandan Genocide”, organised by SALC, REDRESS and African Rights, this publication addresses the presence of genocide suspects in Southern African states and the obligations of these states to hold them to account. Outlining the legal frameworks in place in certain Southern African states and highlighting key challenges that may arise in the investigation and prosecution of crimes under international law in the region, the Report identifies challenges and makes recommendations in this regard.
