Legacies of genocide in Rwanda and Indonesia

A multigenerational perspective

Organised by the Amsterdam Institute for Social Science Research (AISSR)

12 June, 10-17 hour

Both Rwandan and Indonesian modern history were characterized by a series of violent conflicts. The most violent episode in Indonesian history was the 1965-1968 genocide while in Rwandan history it was the 1994 genocide. This symposium will explore in a comparative way what the legacies are of both genocides as experienced by descendants of the generation that consciously lived through the respective genocide episodes - as victim, perpetrator or bystander - and the way these descendants cope with these legacies.
