What does justice look like after genocide? Can the rule of law be a tool for prevention? Join Facing History and Ourselves to explore these questions:
- Facing History is working in close partnership with Skylight Pictures to bring the documentary film, The Reckoning: The Battle for the International Criminal Court, and additional film modules into classrooms around the world.
- We invite you to join a free online workshop about justice, genocide, and the role of the International Criminal Court (ICC). The workshop will highlight the various ways these films, and additional resources, can be used with students to explore both the history of the ICC and various questions around justice in a global society.
- The online workshop will take place over two weeks, and you will be able to participate at your convenience. We are honored to have several distinguished guests join us for our online discussions, including “The Reckoning” filmmakers Paco de Onis, Pamela Yates, and Peter Kinoy.
