Paper of Theofanis Malkidis on Greek Genocide in 2nd Global Conference on Genocide


2nd Global Conference on Genocide

28 June 2010 - 01 July 2010
The second decade of the 21st century will begin with key landmarks in international responses to genocide। Whenthe two ad hoc International Criminal Tribunals (for Rwanda and for the Former Yugoslavia) complete their workat the end of 2010, an initial phase in fulfilling the promise of the Genocide Convention will come to an end. Atthe same time, the Extraordinary Chambers in the Courts of Cambodia will enter a second year of operation whilethe International Criminal Court faces a year of on-going trials, unexecuted arrest warrants and, in May/June, willundertake the first review of its operations.These landmarks are an opportunity to reflect upon advances in the punishment of Genocide (and associatedcrimes); to gauge the deterrent effect of these institutions; and to highlight weaknesses, especially unevenapplication, in the emerging architecture of international criminal justice.In order to reflect on these questions, the International Network of Genocide Scholars (www.inogs.com) togetherwith the Justice and Violence Research Centre (http://www.sussex.ac.uk/justice/) at the University of Sussex will hold a 2nd Global Conference on Genocide (28th June – 1st July 2010, University of Sussex, England).
