Abstract
This article offers a brief analysis of how the Duclert report dissects French military involvement in Rwanda between 1990 and 1994. As the report clearly highlights, this commitment was, from the outset, fraught with tension. The memory of these military operations within the institution will not be the subject of a consensus either, despite the attempts of the France Turquoise association to impose a clear narrative. After the door ajar by the parliamentary information mission in 1998, the report marks a break by giving institutional backing to less publicized, but more lucid voices in the armies. It may be regretted, however, that the Duclert commission was not able or able to go into certain aspects, such as relations on the ground between French officers and officers of the Rwandan Armed Forces, in particular the production of intelligence or the possible use of a strategy. indirect more discreet.
