More Important than Jihad of the Sword: Islamic State's Propaganda Machine and the Yazidi Genocide

January 15, 2018

The Canadian Museum for Human Rights presents Michael Petrou in a talk about the Islamic State and its media and propaganda strategy.

Join our President and CEO John Young and award-winning author and journalist Michael Petrou in the first of our brand-new lecture series.

The lecture entitled "More Important than Jihad of the Sword: Islamic State's Propaganda Machine and the Yazidi Genocide" explores how state propaganda prepared the ground, and ensured support, for the mass slaughter and sexual enslavement of Yazidis whose homeland it overran.

The evening will begin with light refreshments, cash bar and mingling, followed by the lecture, a conversation with John Young and Michael Petrou, and a question-and-answer period. The event will wrap up with a book signing and a meet-and-greet with the author.
