The Legacy of Boutros Boutros-Gali

Former U.N. Secretary General Boutros Boutros-Ghali died at age 93 in a Cairo, Egypt hospital earlier this week. His U.N. leadership was praised by many for his opposition to NATO bombing campaigns in Bosnia, but he also received heavy criticism for his decision-making during the 1994 Rwandan genocide. We reflect on Boutros-Ghali’s career and legacy with one of his former colleagues, Cherif Bassiouni. He’s a Middle East scholar and professor emeritus of law at DePaul University. Guest: Cherif Bassiouni is a middle east scholar and professor emeritus of law at DePaul University.
