Human Rights and Genocide


Do events around the world today indicate that we have not learned much from history?

How do human-rights issues get resolved in conflict?

Why do we still see whole ethnic groups under attack by others?

By sponsoring this Genocide series, the Hobart and William Smith community hopes to improve understanding of all life-annihilation processes inherent in our modern world and to help participants learn more about the circumstances under which life-destruction processes tend to focus on specific groups in events known as genocide. The discussion series features numerous speakers, as well as faculty-student reading groups and special seminars.

Supported by the President, the Provost, the Fisher Center, the Department of Religious Studies, the Zachor Fund of Rochester, and by Hobart alumnus Dr. E.P. Franks.
