This event will commemorate and draw lessons from the 1994 Genocide Against the Tutsi in Rwanda. Panelists include two survivors of and a law professor who specializes in that Genocide. The survivors will share their testimonies about enduring the Genocide and their lives since. The professor will discuss transitional justice responses to the Genocide and how those responses both drew from transitional justice for the Holocaust and have contributed to transitional justice for atrocity crimes since Rwanda.
