September 22, 2014: Lewis Mudge, HRW Researcher on Rwanda, Burundi and Central African Republic, met with current STFers and alumni to discuss life in Africa and what it is like being a HRW researcher. After discussing Lewis’s path to HRW, the group focused on his role in documenting the violence in the Central African Republic and political disappearances in Rwanda. Students asked pointed questions to help them develop ideas for their spring efforts to raise awareness about genocide.

“The number one country HRW writes about is the United States. If you are interested in what is done in the US, dive into it, start researching issues and just try to get there in person,” Lewis advised when asked how to become a Human Rights Watch researcher.
