Last week, Assistant Professor Rezarta Bilali, of the Department of Conflict Resolution, Human Security, and Global Governance at McCormack Graduate School of Policy and Global Studies, spoke in Washington, D.C. on the topic of “Social Psychological Perspectives on Genocide and its Aftermath” at the Mass Atrocity Education Workshop: Teaching about the Holocaust and Genocide Prevention. The workshop was jointly organized by the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum and United States Military Academy at West Point.
The workshop’s goal was to develop accurate and meaningful lessons on the Holocaust and other genocides to be incorporated into existing curricula at the United States service academies, as a way to enhance military's capabilities to prevent mass atrocities.
