BLG LEADERSHIP ACADEMY: Developing Pragmatic Leaders
http://www.ilr.cornell.edu/iws/blg/


NOTE: In light of the continuing economic crisis, it is wise to educate ourselves about the social dangers that can result if societies and individuals forget the lessons of history and act irresponsibly. With this in mind, the following ongoing educational project is being brought to your attention.
Camp des Milles: A Memorial for the Future

[English Version]


NOTE: The IWS Documented News Service is committed to helping the Rwanda Tribunal garner more attention world-wide. The lessons and legacy of ground-breaking legal matters related to the unspeakable events in Rwanda should not be forgotten. Humans, whether from rich or poor countries, must remain vigilant in curbing the motivations that lead individuals and groups to violent hatred and barbaric acts against a class of people. Consequently, items about this tribunal, which will end in 2014, will appear from time to time on this news service.

BLG LEADERSHIP ACADEMY: Developing Pragmatic Leaders
http://www.ilr.cornell.edu/iws/blg/


NOTE: In light of the continuing economic crisis, it is wise to educate ourselves about the social dangers that can result if societies and individuals forget the lessons of history and act irresponsibly. With this in mind, the following ongoing educational project is being brought to your attention.
Camp des Milles: A Memorial for the Future
http://www.campdesmilles.org/index2.html
or
http://www.campdesmilles.org/home2.html
[English Version]


NOTE: The IWS Documented News Service is committed to helping the Rwanda Tribunal garner more attention world-wide. The lessons and legacy of ground-breaking legal matters related to the unspeakable events in Rwanda should not be forgotten. Humans, whether from rich or poor countries, must remain vigilant in curbing the motivations that lead individuals and groups to violent hatred and barbaric acts against a class of people. Consequently, items about this tribunal, which will end in 2014, will appear from time to time on this news service.
