Project Description

Wasja Rijs

criminologist

How do so many ordinary people end up committing such acts of violence and how can we prevent it from reaching this point? For Wasja Rijs, a criminologist specialised in the world’s most serious crimes (war crimes, genocide and crimes against humanity) these two questions are key. Since 2019 she is one of the education officers of RCN Justice & Democracy in Belgium. She facilitates workshops (a mix of world citizenship and remembrance education) for senior high school students and professionals from the justice sector.
