Restorative Justice: Healing Wounds and Repairing Lives - Advancing the Human Rights of Survivors of Genocide in Rwanda

Monday 18 July – Thursday 25 August 2011
Monday – Friday 10am - 8pm
Atrium Gallery, Old Building, LSE 

This exhibition explores the role of restorative justice in promoting the human rights and welfare of survivors of genocide in Rwanda. It examines how restorative justice can complement retributive justice and advance a form of justice that directly impacts on victims of severe human rights violations in a positive, empowering manner that promotes their rehabilitation individually and collectively.

The exhibition features photographic, written, and video testimony of survivors of genocide participating in and benefiting from restorative justice efforts. It illustrates a range of programs that NGOs offer in Rwanda and beyond to assist survivors of genocide and other forms of mass atrocity to access healthcare, housing, education, job training, psycho-social support services, and legal aid.

If you are interested in this topic you may also be interested in an event on Wednesday 14 September 2011, a screening of the film Coexist|, which explores the painful and personal stories of Rwandan genocide survivors as they are made to try to reconcile with perpetrators being released back into their communities from prison. 

This exhibition is open to all, no ticket required. Visitors are welcome during weekdays (Monday - Friday) between 10am and 8pm (excluding bank holidays or unless otherwise stated below). For further information email  arts@lse.ac.uk| or phone on 020 7107 5342.
