May 20 – Rwanda – 25 years after the Genocide

Few—if any—countries in modern times have experienced cataclysmic tragedy of the kind that befell Rwanda in 1994: the genocide against the Tutsi. The country has since undergone a fast transformation. As with any extensive and fast reform, not everything has been easy or straight forward. Reconstruction of an economy from the ground up simultaneously done with rebuilding shattered social and political fibers is bound to come with challenges.

The lecture will look at the genocide against the Tutsi and its history and take stock of Rwanda’s post-genocide recovery while also examining whether we are prepared, as a community of Countries, to uphold the doctrine of the Responsibility to Protect and the underlying principle of Never Again.
