"Yale to add Greek study program," Yale Daily News, January 31, 2001

"Also growing is the Genocide Studies Program, headed by professor Ben Kiernan. The program initially was associated with the Cambodian Genocide Project, but as that initiative winds down it is moving to collect information about genocide in areas like East Timor and Rwanda. Although the Cambodian project helped gather evidence for possible prosecution in Cambodia, not all projects have only this goal. "Even if there's not a tribunal at the end of the road, it's still an important academic exercise and social exercise," Wheeler said. In an example of the expanding program, two Rwandan scholars recently visited Yale and received laptop computers and training about how to create an Internet database of their genocide research."
