- This interdisciplinary volume aims to understand the linkages between the origins and aftermaths of genocide. Exploring social dynamics and human behaviour, this collection considers the interplay of various psychological, political, anthropological and historical factors at work in genocidal processes. -- This collection adopts an interdisciplinary approach in order to understand the various factors at work in genocidal processes and their aftermath. The strong emphasis on legal norms, legal concepts and legal measures in other studies fails to consider further significant issues in relation to genocide. This book aims to redress this balance exploring social dynamics and human behaviour as well as the interplay of various psychological, political, sociological, anthropological and historical factors at work in genocidal processes. With contributions from top international scholars, this volume provides an integrated perspective on risk and resilience, acknowledging the importance of mitigating factors in understanding and preventing genocide. It explores a range of issues including the conceptual definition of genocide, the notion of intent, preventive measures, transitional justice, the importance of property, the role of memory, self or national interest and principles of social existence. Genocide, Risk and Resilience aims to cross conceptual, disciplinary and temporal boundaries and in doing so, provides rich insights for scholars from across political science, history, law, philosophy, anthropology and theology.
- "Prevention of genocide is a most inexact science. It is also a frustrating exercise because the best efforts at early warning are negated frequently due to lack of political will to confront the difficult choices that are always involved in saving innocent lives. Precisely because of those difficulties it is especially important to continue to explore root causes of mass atrocity, as well as how to redress past wrongs before the tensions they create escalate into genocide. It is equally important to study what measures have worked in the past even if the causal link to the prevention of genocide is always hard to prove. In particular, social practices and public policies in the last quarter century that aimed to address legacies of mass atrocities can offer clues towards appropriate remedies for victims and perhaps even a path toward genuine reconciliation [...] This volume is bound to become an indispensable tool in he urgent task to prevent the 'crime of crimes'.' - Juan Mendez, Washington College of Law, USA.
