Human Rights Watch Emergencies Director Peter Bouckaert will be a scholar in residence sponsored by the Kutler Center April 14, 15 and 16. He will discuss his job with journalism, AP Human Geography, French V and philosophy classes.

“E-Team,” a documentary about Bouckaert and his team, will be screened on campus April 15 at 7 p.m., followed by a question and answer session. The film recounts his experiences working for Human Rights Watch in Syria and Libya.

Performing arts teacher Ted Walch, who taught Bouckaert, is also organizing the event.

“It would be my hope that students really gain appreciation for the types of horrific events, and be aware of what’s going on,” Director of Kutler Center Jim Patterson said.
