Dr Apsel speaks at the panel discussion. Screen grab from UN Web TV.

War museums will "continue to predominate" but peace museums can "give daylight" to stories that are often hidden, an expert on genocide says.

Dr Joyce Apsel is the President of the Institute for the Study of Genocide as well as a Clinical Professor at New York University and the International Network of Museums for Peace representative to the United Nations.

She was at UN Headquarters for a panel discussion on the role of art, music and museums in creating cultures of peace. Following the discussion, Dr Apsel spoke with Lucy Dean about the importance of peace in the world today.
