After Genocide :: Symposium: 15 Years After Genocide: Where Now for Rwanda?

Symposium: 15 Years After Genocide: Where Now for Rwanda?

Tuesday, 17 March 2009
2:00-8:00pm
Lecture Theatre, Social Sciences Building, Manor Road, Oxford University
 
Between April and July 1994, the Rwandan genocide claimed the lives of approximately 800,000 Tutsi and their perceived Hutu and Twa sympathisers. The ramifications of the genocide continue to be felt acutely in the daily lives of all Rwandans and in the entire Great Lakes region and beyond. This half-day symposium, the programme of which is listed below, will commemorate the 15th anniversary of the genocide by recalling the events of 1994; the justice, security, reconciliation and development responses to the genocide; and will ask what the future holds for Rwanda. The symposium will draw insights from law, politics, international relations, economics and history.

Speakers will include:
H.E. Ambassador Claver Gatete (Rwandan Ambassador to the Court of St. James’s and Ireland)
Prof. David Anderson (Director, African Studies Centre, University of Oxford)
Brig. Gen. Frank Rusagara (Military Historian, Rwandan Defence Forces; Visiting Fellow, Royal United
Services Institute)
Andrew Wallis (Researcher, University of Cambridge; author of Silent Accomplice: The Untold Story of France’s Role in the Rwandan Genocide)
Dr. Phil Clark (Research Fellow in Courts and Public Policy, Centre for Socio-Legal Studies, University of Oxford)
Jean-Baptiste Kayigamba (Rwandan genocide survivor and former Reuters journalist)
Dr. Anna Schmidt (Research Fellow in Governance, Institute for Development Studies, University of Sussex)
Dr. Devon Curtis (Lecturer in Politics, University of Cambridge)
Bruno Versailles (Former European Commission Country Economist for Rwanda; DPhil candidate in
Economics, University of Oxford)
Zachary D. Kaufman (JD candidate, Yale Law School; DPhil candidate in International Relations, University of Oxford)

The event will also serve as a launch of: After Genocide: Transitional Justice, Post-Conflict Reconstruction, and Reconciliation in Rwanda and Beyond, edited by Phil Clark and Zachary D. Kaufman and published by C. Hurst and Co. and Columbia University Press (2009).
 
The symposium is co-hosted by Oxford Transitional Justice Research; the Oxford Institute for Ethics, Law and Armed Conflict; and the European Studies Centre at the University of Oxford.
