Genocide Education & Prevention Project (GEAPP)

The Genocide Education & Prevention Project (GEAPP) is a collaboration between Montclair State University and George Mason University dedicated to researching human rights issues and identifying innovative practices and methodologies that focus on genocide education, genocide prevention, and links between the two. From July 24-26, 2017 at Montclair State University, scholars and lawyers will present research on human rights and genocide for discussion. The research presentations are open to the public and the conference is an opportunity to bring together higher education humanities, law, and secondary education.

Given the NJ mandate to integrate genocide and holocaust education into K-12 curriculum, the MSU Holocaust, Genocide, and Human Rights Education Project is extending a unique invitation to secondary school teachers as well as MSU undergraduate and graduate students. In addition to attending conferences sessions, teachers and students may apply for an all-expense-paid visit to the United Nations Headquarters and dinner with conference scholars in New York City on July 25. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis, space is limited, and preference is given to applicants who indicate how the opportunity will benefit their professional career:  https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/M52JBCV.
