LTG (R) Dallaire Guest Lecture
LTG (R) Roméo Dallaire, the UN force commander during the Rwandan Genocide, visited West Point, speaking to an audience of over 150 cadets and invited guests. His lecture, “Conflict Prevention in a Globalized World,” discussed leadership and the changing nature of command in an increasingly complex post-Cold War world. The energy, dynamism, and sophistication of General Dallaire’s talk left a strong impression on both the cadets and the faculty organizers. The event was conducted in collaboration with our partners in the Northeast Regional Consortium of Higher Education Centers of Holocaust, Genocide, and Human Rights Studies.
