Grawemeyer Winner Hopes Genocide Research Will Help Prevent Future Atrocities

University of Wisconsin-Madison professor Scott Straus is the recipient of this year’s Grawemeyer Award for Improving World Order from the University of Louisville. Straus is the author of a recent book on war, leadership and genocide in modern Africa. He says his work is driven by a desire to better understand the issues and factors surrounding events that lead to genocide and political violence.

WFPL’s Amina Elahi spoke with Straus about his work and passion for genocide prevention.
