"Peacekeeping Does Not Have to Wait"
April 2014 marks the 20th anniversary of the Rwandan genocide. All month, the Canadian Centre for the Responsibility to Protect and OpenCanada.org are publishing reflections from prominent Canadians who have shown leadership in promoting global humanitarianism as part of its series Canadian Voices on R2P. Please see the link below for the contribution by The Simons Foundation Peace Leader, LGen. the Hon. Roméo Dallaire.
LGen the Hon. Roméo Dallaire was Force Commander of the United Nations Assistance Mission in Rwanda (UNAMIR) prior to and during the 1994 genocide. He is a Canadian Senator, a distinguished Senior Fellow at the Montreal Institute for Genocide and Human Rights Studies (MIGS) at Concordia University, Co-Director of the MIGS Will to Intervene Project, and one of The Simons Foundation’s Peace Leaders.
The Simons Foundation was the Canadian funder of the the International Commision on Intervention and State Sovereignty (ICISS) report, The Responsibility to Protect (R2P), and the major funder of The Will to Intervene (W2I) Project of the Montreal Institute for Geneocide and Human Right Studies at Concordia University.
