Genocide and Human Rights Webinar Series

The COVID-19 pandemic has drastically changed how we all live our daily lives, and how we interact with the world around us. For the International Institute for Genocide and Human Rights Studies this means that for the first time in 18 years the Institute will not be able to welcome students and practitioners from around the world to its Genocide and Human Rights University Program. This intensive summer course aims to develop the new generation of scholars to engage in research and publication in the field of Genocide and Human Rights Studies.
