Former Force Commander of the United Nations Assistance Mission in Rwanda (UNAMIR) (1993-1994) and Founder of the Roméo Dallaire Child Soldiers Initiative

His experiences as the UNAMIR Force Commander during the 1994 Rwandan genocide became the subject of the book Shake Hands with Devil: The Failure of Humanity in Rwanda, and the basis of a full-length feature film released in 2007. It was during this time that Dallaire was first exposed to the use of child soldiers.

He has subsequently committed the rest of his life to ending the use of children in armed conflict, and with this intention founded The Roméo Dallaire Child Soldiers Initiative.
