Description

Roméo A. Dallaire, the head of the UN peacekeeping mission in Rwanda during the genocide in 1994, played a heroic role trying to save lives in the face of overwhelming odds. Since that time, he has become a voice of conscience on the doctrine known as "the responsibility to protect" and an advocate for ending the use of child soldiers.

Dallaire is the founder of The Roméo Dallaire Child Soldiers Initiative, which trains peacekeepers as well as security forces, teachers, and others in affected countries on preventing children from being forced into serving as soldiers. He will speak on the imperative to act in the face of atrocities and the instruments available to limit their impact on innocent civilians.

Dallaire is author of Shake Hands with the Devil: The Failure of Humanity in Rwanda and They Fight Like Soldiers, They Die Like Children: The Global Quest to Eradicate the Use of Child Soldiers.

Journalist James Traub will interview Dallaire. The format of the event will be as follows:

6:00PM - Doors open
6:15PM-7:15PM – Television taping of conversation (please arrive on time)
7:15PM-7:45PM – Reception 

Traub has worked as a columnist for Foreign Policy's website, a staff writer for The New Yorker, and a contributing writer to The New York Times Magazine, reporting widely from Africa and the Middle East. He is the author of five books, and is currently writing a biography of John Quincy Adams.
