CIGI senior fellow Allan Thompson appeared on The Agenda with Steve Paikin to reflect on 25th anniversary of the Rwanda genocide and to discuss his new book, Media and Mass Atrocity: The Rwanda Genocide and Beyond:
"Now, a majority of Rwandans — something like 60 per cent of the population — are under 25," noted Thompson.
