Darfur whistle-blower to deliver lecture

Former Head of the UN in Sudan and whistle-blower of the genocide in Darfur, Professor Mukesh Kapila CBE, is to deliver a public lecture at the University of Liverpool.

While stationed in Sudan as UN Development Programme Representative in 2003-4, Professor Kapila spoke out to condemn the human rights abuses being committed in the western region of Darfur, helping to bring them to the attention of the world’s media for the first time. He now uses his experiences to advise human rights organisations, and is a Special Representative for the Aegis Trust which campaigns to prevent genocide worldwide.

The lecture, entitled ‘The greatest of all crimes known to humanity: the legacy of the genocides in Darfur and Rwanda’ is free to attend and will take place at 6pm on Wednesday 29 October in the Stanley Theatre in the Guild of Students.
