Center for the Study of Genocide and Human Rights

2012 Genocide Awareness Month

CGHR is hosting a series of events, ranging from lectures to international symposia, to increase awareness about genocide. This 2012 Genocide Awareness Speaker Series, which is made possibly by funding from the Rutgers-Newark Alumni Association, features talks on such issues as gendered violence in the Democratic Republic of Congo, post-conflict reconciliation, and Holocaust education and reserach.
