Rwanda developed unique transitional justice mechanisms to address the genocide and prevent further violence, and Dr. Nyseth Brehm will discuss the impact of these measures on survivors and on preventing genocide denial and ideology.

Dr. Hollie Nyseth Brehm is an Associate Professor of Sociology and Criminology at The Ohio State University. She has published 40 articles and book chapters on genocide and human rights and is the recipient of the International Association of Genocide Scholars’ Emerging Scholar prize as well as the American Society of Criminology’s Cavan Young Scholar Award, which are the highest honors given to early-career scholars in each association. Nyseth Brehm is the Principal Investigator of two grants from the National Science Foundation that each focus on transitional justice in Rwanda. She serves on a U.S. atrocity prevention task force, has worked with several Rwandan organizations for almost a decade, and runs a study abroad in Rwanda.

This event is sponsored by Alpha Pi Theta (PTK) at Brookdale Community College.
