Speaker:  Josh Kassner, Assistant Professor, Division of Legal, Ethical and Historical Studies

In 1994, nearly one million men, women, and children were slaughtered because of their ethinicity.  The tragedy of the Rwandan genocide has caused many to question the international community's choice not to intervene.  Dr. Kassner uses the Rwandan genocide as a means of discussing international morality and the role of morality in international relations.
