Samantha Lakin, a doctoral student at the Strassler Center for Holocaust and Genocide Studies, appeared as a guest on Voice of America (VOA) Afrique's "Washington Forum" on April 28 to discuss the current crisis in Burundi. The other guest was Adama Dieng, a United Nations special adviser on the prevention of genocide.
The video is in French; a Google translation of the introduction reads: In late April 2015, Burundi plunged into a serious political and humanitarian crisis, triggered by the decision of Pierre Nkurunziza to seek a third presidential term. A year later, violence, killings and an exodus continues at the point where the International Criminal Court is now interested. Is a solution to the crisis possible? Has the international community failed?
