Seeking Justice In the Aftermath of Genocide: Feb - March Online Forum for Educators
Facing History and Ourselves is pleased to invite teachers, students and scholars to participate in an extraordinary opportunity to exchange ideas and questions with four internationally renowned observers of how individuals, communities and nations seek justice in the aftermath of genocide. Justice Richard Goldstone of the South Africa Constitutional Court, Martha Minow of the Kosovo Commission and Harvard Univ. Law School, Samantha Power author of A Problem form Hell, America and the Age of Genocide, and Pumla Gobodo Madikizela former member of South Africa's Truth and Reconciliation Committee and author of the recently published A Human Being Died that Night; A South African Story of Forgiveness will be participating in this online forum, between Feb. 20th and March 7th, 2003.
As nations and individuals are debating the relevance and importance of war crimes tribunals, truth commissions and other attempts to seek justice, this online forum provides a unique opportunity for students, teachers and community members to interact both with each other and this diverse panel of international scholars.
