Conference 2018, Rwanda
Dear Fellow Prison Reformers & Human Rights Defenders,
CURE International in collaboration with GNPDR- Good News of Peace and Development for Rwanda invites you to participate in the 8th International Conference on Human Rights and Prison Reform, to be held in Kigali, Rwanda from May 21-25, 2018.
The conference will explore reconciliation, restorative justice practices, alternatives to imprisonment, and other issues in the criminal justice context, while taking an up-close look at the Rwandan experience of post-genocide reconciliation, especially through the “Grass Courts.” In addition, we will be sharing experiences and knowledge of recent advances and trends in the area of human rights and prison reform.
The schedule will include plenary speakers and break-out groups, as well as visits to a Rwandan prison, to the genocide memorial in Kigali, and to a village of reconciliation to learn about the post-genocide reparations process.
The conference begins at 1PM on May 21st and finishes at 11:30AM on May 25th.
For more information, please write to either Pius or Heidi. We look forward to welcoming you in Kigali and working for a better and more just world together.
