HSP Seminar (#239) “Rwanda : Where is it at on peacebuilding and reconciliation?”

Description: The seminar aims at providing our students and participants insight into the current Rwandan society from the perspective of peacebuilding and reconciliation. The guest lecturer leads a reconciliation project in Rwanda with the local community, and teaches at the Protestant Institute of Arts and Social Sciences (PIASS). Based on this unique first-hand experience and insight into the society, he will analyze how far Rwanda has come on building sustainable peace and reconciliation between different groups after the civil war.
