Genocide and its Aftermath in Rwanda Information Session


Monday, November 18, 2019, 5:30PM - 6:30PM


Attend this information session to learn more about the Genocide and Its Aftermath in Rwanda education abroad program. This program will explore the 1994 Rwandan genocide and its aftermath through active learning experiences in Rwanda. You will begin by studying the origins of the genocide with an emphasis on why the genocide occurred and, more broadly, what causes genocide globally. Then you will study the violence itself, including the forms of violence, who participated in the violence and who was victimized. Lastly, you will turn your attention to the aftermath of the genocide and study the legal response to the violence. This will involve examining the local "gacaca" courts that were instituted across the country and the collective memories of the genocide. You will also examine the current state of human rights in Rwanda and some of the regional effects of the violence. Finally, you will study development and aid in Rwanda today, critically exploring the country’s tremendous economic growth since 1994. Open to all majors and taught in English.
