The audio files and interview transcripts, which were conducted by UN staff and Yale University researchers, also include discussions held during the creation of the UN Charter as well as reflections of staff members who remembered what it was like working at Hunter College before the Headquarters moved permanently to Manhattan’s East Side. The Collection will further reveal for academic, researcher and global citizen the history of the founding of the UN and its role in conflict resolution since 1945.
Will We See (Hear) About Bosnia & Herzegovina and Rwanda?
Below is a list of subjects that are highlighted in the “Oral History Collection.” It is notable that Bosnia & Herzegovina (former Yugoslavia) and Rwanda conflicts nor genocide are mentioned. Those were notable disappointments/failures (depending on your perspective) which still deserve review both for perspective on what can be done to improve such situations today as well as what should have been learned. The International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia – ICTY (as well as Rwanda – ICTR) forever changed the course of international justice and gave impetus/shaped the Rome Conference (also absent and perhaps most critical event since creation of UN/UN Charter) and the International Criminal Court – ICC. Without ICTY there would have been probably no Rome Conference or ICC.
