“A Great Intellectual Journey”: The Zoryan Institute Celebrates the Completion of Another Successful Genocide and Human Rights

“The fluidity with which we moved across concepts, analyses, and examples of and pertaining to genocide. The depth that we reached each day during a session and the way it was further expanded upon as Dr. Apsel and each of the participants connected the themes across an array of topics, was also a great strength of the program.”
“One of the strengths of the course was bringing in people from all areas of study. Not just the presenters, but also students, who have such a vast background and can provide other insights into genocide and human rights that others in certain fields may not have considered before.”
“While this course ran for most of the day, it did not feel tedious or monotonous. I was often surprised at how quickly the time would pass by, which speaks to the richness of the content.”

Capping off two weeks of intensive learning and discussion was the graduation and closing ceremony.Joined by faculty, staff and Zoryan friends, we celebrated the students’ dedication and commitment to Genocide & Human Rights Studies. The 2021 GHRUP class joins a vast and accomplished GHRUP alum network of over 400+ scholars around the world who have carried the lessons and connections made at GHRUP into their careers.
