AUSTIN, Texas (December 9, 2010) — The Human Rights Documentation Initiative at the University of Texas Libraries is playing a significant role in the establishment of an archive for the preservation of records related to the Rwandan genocide.
Commissioned by Kigali City Council and established by the Aegis Trust (UK) in association with Rwanda's National Commission for the Fight Against Genocide, the Genocide Archive of Rwanda will open at the Kigali Genocide Memorial in Rwanda this Friday on slopes above mass graves containing more than 250,000 of those murdered. It will make the 1994 genocide one of the most comprehensively documented — and most easily researchable — genocides of all time.

AUSTIN, Texas —The Human Rights Documentation Initiative, a project of the University of Texas Libraries, has launched its website.

The Human Rights Documentation Initiative (HRDI) website provides archived web resources for distance research, highlights human rights related archival materials at UT, informs the public on HRDI’s current documentation partnerships and promotes human rights events and research occurring at The University of Texas at Austin. The site also features a blog to document participant perspectives, project trips, and experiences regarding the work being done to advance the project. The HRDI has concurrently launched a Twitter feed to provide real-time project updates, event reminders and human rights related news.
