The UN Genocide Convention at Seventy. The Politics of Mass Atrocity Prevention

To mark the seventieth anniversary of the UN Convention for the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide, the Norwegian Holocaust Center in Oslo is organizing an international interdisciplinary conference. Financed by the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the conference aims to further our understanding of genocide and mass-atrocity prevention.


Topics include the relationship between law and politics; the rhetoric of genocide; non-state perpetrators of genocide; comparative research about causes of mass violence and implications for prevention; tools for prevention including early warning and R2P; and case studies of effective de-escalation of violence.
