Rwanda: Democracy and Justice After Genocide?

Rwanda: Democracy and Justice After Genocide?

On Wednesday, February 26, Drs. Stéphane Audoin-Rouzeau, Hélène Dumas, Henry Rousso, and Richard Golsan will participate in a public panel discussing the events and aftermath of the 1994 genocide of Rwandan Tutsi.

In 1994, the Rwandan Civil War led to a three-month genocide of the Tutsi people, claiming the lives of an estimated 500,000 to over one million people. Twenty-six years later, our panel of experts will discuss the response of the Rwandan government and the international community to this tragedy as well as the state of justice for the victims.

The France/TAMU Institute (French Center of Excellence) and the Scowcroft Institute of International Affairs at the Bush School of Government and Public Service invite you to join us for this roundtable discussion. Register for the event on the Bush School website.

Sign-in will begin at 5:30 p.m., followed by the roundtable at 6 p.m. in the Annenberg Presidential Conference Center on Texas A&M University’s West Campus.

Dr. Stéphane Audoin-Rouzeau is the Director of the School for Advanced Studies in Social Sciences at the University of Paris. Dr. Hélène Dumas is a historian and researcher at the French National Centre for Scientific Research.
