The Conference

Vanier College is proud to host a community conference entitled, Justice and Accountability, March 30-31, 2017. The honorary Chairman is Professor Irwin Cotler. Our proud sponsors are the Holocaust Education and Genocide Prevention Foundation and the Raoul Wallenberg Centre for Human Rights. This conference is under the auspices of the 25th Annual Symposium on the Holocaust and Genocide.

“The conference takes place at an extraordinary juncture of intersecting historical events on the eve of the 70th anniversary of the genocide convention – sometimes referred to as the Never Again convention, but which has been violated again and again; and the eve of the 70th anniversary of the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights – referred to as the Magna Carta of Human Rights – but which continues to be violated in every one of its particulars, and the 150th anniversary of Canadian Confederation. It is a time to ask ourselves – what have we learned – and what must we do?” said Mr. Cotler.
