Featuring Jennifer Trahan, Clinical Associate Professor, Center for Global Affairs

Twenty years after almost incomprehensible crimes occurred in Rwanda, the country has gone through both remarkable growth and an extensive accountability process related to the genocide. Professor Trahan shares her impressions from her recent field trip to Rwanda and discusses the three tiers of justice for the genocide:  the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda (ICTR), local domestic courts in Rwanda, and the traditional mechanism known as “Gacaca.”  While remarkable progress has been achieved, there remain some troubling aspects to Rwanda’s rebuilding: will its success remain a stable and enduring one?

The Conflict, Security, and Development Series is co-presented by the Center for Human Rights and Global Justice at NYU Law School, the Center for Global Affairs at NYU’s School for Continuing and Professional Studies, NYU’s Global Institute for Public Health, and the Office of International Programs at NYU Wagner.

Each Tuesday, this series will examine new research, discuss creative policy approaches and highlight recent analytical and practical innovations in responding to the challenges of security and development in the context of conflict and post-conflict situations.
