PRO: Has the daunting task of getting people on opposing sides of the worst genocide in post-World War II history -- in which at least 500,000 Tutsi and Hutus were slaughtered -- to reconcile with the past and with each other. Even a glimmer of success will provide important lessons.
CON: The process is focusing only on the genocide and not the Tutsi reprisals during and after it, or the civil war that preceded it. That itself is an obstacle to its success.
