On Tuesday, November 22, Henry Theriault (Philosophy) presented remarks titled, “Le Génocide arménien: Une résolution juste, à travers les reparations,” at the Armenian Cultural Center of Paris, France.

With a select group of 21 other scholars from across the globe, he was then a participant in the Universitair Centrum Sint-Ignatius Antwerpen’s international workshop, “Preventing Genocide: Root Causes and Coping Strategies,” held at the University of Antwerp in Belgium on November 24 and 25. There he presented the paper, “Forced Moral Responsibility and Perpetrator-Victim Group Conciliation,” a part of his current research on long-term resolutions of past genocides and related mass human rights violations.

In January he will present “Sharing the Burden as a Path Toward Victim-Perpetrator Conciliation” at the School for International Training Symposium, “Conflict, Memory, and Reconciliation: Bridging Past, Present, and Future,” in Kigali, Rwanda.
