National Unity and Reconciliation Commission
The National Unity and Reconciliation Commission of Rwanda was originally founded on 3 December 1999. The commission states that it was formed in response to the 1994 genocide and aimed to foster national unity and reconciliation following that period in Rwandan history. According to its founding legislation, the commission sought to establish systems that would strengthen national unity and reconciliation and educate citizens on the mechanisms to foster national unity and reconciliation. The commission was also tasked with researching, organising and disseminating ideas via national publications to promote peace and unity and to discourage division or intolerance among citizens. It was mandated to produce annual reports and ensure that public institutions, leaders and citizens were following policies created to foster national unity and reconciliation.
