Stanford should push Kagame on human rights

We recognize the privilege of being at a university where such prominent figures are brought in to speak, and we strongly believe that the advancements that have been made in rebuilding Rwanda after the genocide should be celebrated and encouraged. We do not believe, however, that the Stanford administration, the GSB or the student body as a whole should ignore the serious allegations that have been leveled against Kagame’s administration. Kagame’s Rwanda is complex and multidimensional; as we celebrate one dimension, we must be sure not to ignore those other, more sinister elements.
