Announcement from the International Institute for Genocide and Human Rights Studies

The International Institute for Genocide and Human Rights Studies (A Division of the Zoryan Institute) hosts an annual 2-week, intensive course in partnership with the University of Toronto. The Genocide and Human Rights University Program is entering its 16th year of operation as one of the Institute’s most rewarding initiatives to further education, help raise genocide awareness and advancing the cause of prevention and promote the study of human rights. Over 400 students have graduated from the course, and over 40 renowned specialized scholars have participated as instructors in this program, including IAGS President, Professor Andrew Woolford, former President, Professor Joyce Apsel and Vice-President, Professor Elisa von Joeden-Forgey.

The program uses a comparative approach to understand the many complexities surrounding genocide, and incorporates subjects such as genocide theory, sociology, political science, anthropology, international law, history, and psychology. Through fostering dialogue, historical analysis and education, GHRUP provides the essential training to develop a new generation of scholars to engage in research and publication in this field.
