This seminar will include a panel discussion about crimes of genocide and how the global community can work together to prevent such atrocities from happening again in Rwanda and other countries. The distinguished speakers will engage in an open discussion on how the Rwandan people have transcended the tragedy and how their experience can help shape peacebuilding interventions in other countries in conflict.
