International Decision-Making in Genocidal Crises

Since 2012, Salzburg Global Seminar has been working with the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum and the National Security Archive in Washington, DC to plan and implement a multi-year program on Genocide Prevention.  

The first stage of this program focuses on the genocide in Rwanda in 1994. The USHMM and NSA have undertaken extensive research and uncovered important new evidence, which will be examined at a conference in The Hague in June 2014, with the participation of people who were involved in international decisions taken during the crisis; in 2015 we hope to hold a similar conference in Salzburg on international decision-making during the Bosnian genocide of 1992-95.
