It is being organized in collaboration with the University of Rwanda – the College of Arts and Social Sciences (UR-CASS) and International Victimology Institute Tilburg (INTERVICT) – Netherlands.
The study trip is aimed at educating participants about Transitional Justice mechanisms adopted after the 1994 genocide. It is designed to clarify the complexities involved in re-building a society after a genocide, and will be comprised of two components: a literature study and a study tour. It will involve all stakeholders in Rwanda, visiting genocide memorial sites, solidarity camps, social- economic development initiatives and different crucial institutions involved in reconciliation efforts.
