“Our commitment must be to remember the victims who perished, respect the survivors still with us, and reaffirm humanity's common aspiration for mutual understanding and justice.”
-- Declaration of the Stockholm International Forum on the Holocaust
From 1-12 August 2016, the International Institue for Genocide and Human Rights Studies in Toronto will hold the 15th Genocide and Human Rights University Summer Programme (GHRUP).
The two-week program is taught in a seminar setting with 12 renowned scholars. This year’s faculty consists of: Joyce Apsel, Stephan Astourian, Doris Bergen, Hazel Cameron, Herb Hirsch, Elisa von Joeden Forgey, Victoria Sanford, William Schabas, Roger W. Smith, James Waller and Andrew Woolford. GHRUP explores theories about genocide and other gross violations of human rights through an interdisciplinary, comparative analysis.
The mission of the Genocide and Human Rights University Program is to encourage a new generation of scholars to engage in research and publication in the field of Genocide and Human Rights Studies. This is achieved through a comparative and interdisciplinary analysis of genocides. The program seeks to help develop an academic support system for those who work toward the
prevention of genocide.
The application deadline is 16 May 2016. Questions can be addressed to: admin[at] genocidestudies [dott] org
