Lieutenant-General The Honourable Roméo Dallaire (Ret):

Roméo Dallaire is a Canadian Senator, author and humanitarian. During his highly decorated 35-year career in the Canadian Armed Forces, Dallaire served as the Force Commander of the United Nations Assistance Mission to Rwanda and bore witness to the 1994 genocide in that nation—one of the worst atrocities of the 20th century. Dallaire’s courage in calling to account the nations that abandoned Rwanda has made him a hero in Canada and around the world. With the publication of his most recent book They Fight Like Soldiers, They Die Like Children, Dallaire has turned his humanitarian concerns to another global tragedy, making it his personal mission to end the international use of child soldiers in war and armed conflict.

The Watts Lectures:

The Watts Lecture series is named in honour of the late F.B. Watts, a distinguished geography professor who died in 1969. The F. B. Watts Memorial Lecture series was established in  1970 with the intention that the lectures have as wide an appeal as possible both within the university and in the community, and that distinguished speakers be invited from all walks of life.
