UNESCO Chair in Genocide Education

UNESCO established a Chairs Program to connect the world’s leading scholars on the challenges of genocide education. In 2013, USC named Executive Director Stephen Smith the UNESCO Chair in Genocide Education. Stephen Smith will collaborate with genocide researchers and educators around the world to develop educator training, host international conferences, and multidisciplinary programs that foster learning about the causes and effects of mass violence. The program involves over 700 institutions in 126 countries.
