SSH Seminar Series: Healing a Wounded Society and Building Sustainable Peace in Rwanda
Presented by Dr. Therese Seibert: Twenty-five years after the 1994 Genocide against the Tutsi, Rwandans continue to grapple with genocidal wounds, and their peace remains fragile. On January 2, 2015, Never Again Rwanda (NAR), with valuable support from the International Peacebuilding Alliance (Interpeace), launched the four-year program “Societal Healing and Participatory Governance for Sustainable Peace in Rwanda,” (SHPG program). This presentation summarizes and evaluates one aspect of the program referred to as Spaces for Healing, which uses a psychosocial approach to provide adult genocide survivors a safe space for healing, reconciliation, and peacebuilding.
