Apart from having critical research on 1971 Bangladesh genocide and the ones that occurred elsewhere in the past or since then, there should be a concerted effort to collect the ‘life stories’ of each and every dead and living victim as well as of perpetrators of Bangladesh genocide.
Courses of all kinds, semester-wise or year-long, including those designed for the professionals, could be offered by the Centre for Genocide Studies. Such courses on genocide and mass violence need not be limited to social science students but could also be offered to the students of science and business faculties.
The birth of Bangladesh, as indicated earlier, cannot be contemplated without taking into consideration the glorious role and the painful sacrifice of Dhaka University. As a result the campus has become a destination for the tourists, both local and foreign.
The Centre for Genocide Studies could attract a large number of people from within the country and beyond by collecting genocidal relics and printed and visual materials of all kinds, including posters, photos and pamphleteers, relating to genocide and mass violence.
