Rwanda 1994: “We Could Do Nothing”?

This is the third in a series of four lectures on genocide after 1945.


Since 1994, there has been an almost continuous series of debates, studies and resolutions on the role of the West in Rwanda's genocide. These have shown how little true humanitarianism there is at the heart of states that both possess resources and profess a commitment to human rights. Linda Melvern discusses the current campaign of denial of the Rwandan genocide and asks if it is part of a process to absolve those concerned of their responsibilities.

This is the third in a series of four lectures on genocide after 1945 which includes talks on Cambodia and the former Yugoslavia.

Linda Melvern is an Honorary Professor in the Department of International Politics, University of Wales, Aberystwyth. A consultant to the Military One prosecution team at the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda, part of her archive of documents is used to show the planning and progress of the 1994 genocide.
