Kizito Kalima, a Rwandan genocide survivor,and Dr. Ian McIntosh, director of international partnerships at IUPUI, will discuss the strengths and weaknesses of using unilateral forgiveness to achieve long-term peace in a case study from Rwanda.
The lecture is sponsored by the Public Education for Peacebuilding Support initiative of the United States Institute of Peace to explore a novel approach to achieving peace and reconciliation on the global stage.
The U. S. Institute of Peace is the independent, nonpartisan conflict management center created by Congress to prevent and mitigate international conflict without resorting to violence. The institute works to save lives, increase the government’s ability to deal with conflicts before they escalate, reduce government costs and enhance national security. It is headquartered in Washington, D.C., with offices in Baghdad, Iraq, and Kabul, Afghanistan.
As part of its congressional mandate, the U.S. Institute of Peace devotes a portion of its budget to support organizations that will advance the field of conflict management by developing new techniques, establishing best practices and professionalizing the field through education and training. The Public Education for Peacebuilding Support is a program of the U.S. Institute of Peace administered by the Institute of International Education.
