Transitional Justice Lecture and UNMICT visit in Arusha, Tumaini University Makumira (Fulbright Rwanda, 2017-2018)

It has been an exciting start to 2018 as a Fulbright Scholar in Rwanda (2017-2018). Here is the first update.

I was pleased to be hosted by the Honorable Judge Vagn Joensen, former President of the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda, and Judge at the UN-MICT in Arusha. He joined me for my lecture at Tumaini University Makumira, Arusha, Faculty of Law, where I spoke to 200 engaged and excited law students and their esteemed faculty. The lecture, titled, Practical Implications of the Holistic Nexus between Juridical and Non-Juridical Transitional Justice Measures: The Case of the Great Lakes Region of Africa, provided a framework for discussing legal and symbolic measures to address mass atrocities and genocide, using examples from my extended research in Rwanda.
