Professor Federigo Argentieri to Speak at Rwanda Genocide Memorial Day

Eighteen years ago, on April 7th, 1994, began the Rwandan genocide, which would end up claiming a million human lives over a period of 100 days.

Ceremonies marking this anniversary are being held all over the world, and Italy is no exception. The charity Bene Rwanda will be holding the 18th annual Genocide Memorial Day in Rome next Saturday, April 14th.

In recognition of the relentless work on information, discussion and research around this topic carried on over the past ten years at John Cabot University, our students have been specifically invited, along with Professor Federigo Argentieri, director of the Guarini Institute for Public Affairs, who will give a historical introduction to the meeting. Among the other main speakers will be Nicola Zingaretti, president of the Province of Rome, and genocide survivor Yolande Mukagasana.
