Webster University the Netherlands director Jean Paul van Marissing met with Jean Pierre Karabaranga, the Ambassador of the Republic of Rwanda to the Netherlands, at the embassy of Rwanda in The Hague this month.

They discussed the importance of international human rights and the commemoration of genocide. One of the considerations in their discussion was that in times of anti-globalization and anti-immigration movements, international human rights are needed to provide a safe harbor to those who are in need of protection.

Among the Webster degree programs offered in the Netherlands is the MA in International Human Rights.

Karabaranga was named ambassador to the Netherlands in 2013, after previously serving as permanent secretary of Rwanda's Ministry of Sports and Culture.
