Lessons From the Past: The Armenian Genocide, Humanitarian Intervention and Human Rights, December 1-3
In the midst of violence, many of us ask, what can I do to make a difference? Join us for an online forum as we learn from the past to consider what we know about responding to injustice and preventing genocide today.
LESSONS FROM THE PAST: THE ARMENIAN GENOCIDE, HUMANITARIAN INTERVENTION AND HUMAN RIGHTS, DECEMBER 1-3
Facing History and Ourselves will host a global online conversation for educators, scholars, and university and graduate students focusing on the difficult choices individuals, groups, and nations have confronted - and continue to struggle with - in the face of genocide.
The forum will build upon the issues explored in Facing History and Ourselves newest resource book, Crimes Against Humanity and Civilization: The Genocide of the Armenians, as well as examine the work of contemporary human rights activists and scholars who challenge indifference and believe prevention is possible.
Facing History and Ourselves staff will facilitate this three-day online forum with the participation of leading human rights and Armenian Genocide scholars, including Chair of Modern Armenian History at the University of California, Los Angeles, Richard Hovannisian; Smith College Professor and human rights activist Eric Reeves, a frequent writer and commentator on the genocide in Sudan; and genocide scholar Helen Fein, the executive director of the International Association of Genocide Scholars. The online forum is free of charge. For more information, please visit the following web address.
