Rwanda is set to start a week-long event marking 25 years since the 1994 genocide, considered one of the worst atrocities of the 20th century, in which more than 800,000 people were killed.
Across the capital, Kigali, last minute preparations are being made to get the city ready for the first day of the remembrance on Sunday.
Simon Adams, the executive director of the Global Centre for the Responsibility to Protect in New York, talks to Al Jazeera about what the commemoration means for the world.
