Rwanda Today: 20 years after the genocide

Lecture - 

Unfortunately, this programme is sold out. In 1994, an estimated 800,000 Rwandans were killed in the space of 100 days. How does a state that survived mass violence and mass killings build a new future, and what mechanisms does it use for coming to terms with its past? Transitional Justice has many different faces. History has seen (inter)national tribunals, truth and reconciliation committees and local coping mechanisms.
