United States and the Genocide Convention - 2862289128

United States and the Genocide Convention Duke University Press

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

In this definitive study, Lawrence J. LeBlanc examines the nearly forty-year struggle over ratification of the Genocide Convention by the United States. LeBlanc's analysis of the history of the convention and the issues and problems surrounding its ratification sheds important light on the process of treaty ratification in the United States and on the role of American public opinion and political culture in international human rights legislation. Drawing on case studies of genocide committed since World War II, the author also confronts the strengths and weaknesses of international adjudication as a whole.Adopted by the United Nations General Assembly in 1948 in response to the atrocities committed by the Nazis before and during World War II, the Genocide Convention was finally made law by the United States Senate in 1988 contingent upon a series of conditions--known as the Lugar-Helms-Hatch Sovereignty Package--which, LeBlanc suggests, markedly weakened the convention. Through careful analysis of the bitter debates over ratification, LeBlanc demonstrates that much of the opposition to the convention sprang from fears that it would be used domestically as a tool by groups such as blacks and Native Americans who might hold the U.S. accountable for genocide in matters of race relations.

United Nations & the Maintenance of International Security Greenwood Publishing Group

Inne 1

International security needs to be understood in much broader terms in the aftermath of the Cold War. This extensively revised edition retains the valuable descriptions and analyses of the United Nations' achievements and failures, while placing them in the context of the ever-broadening definition of international security and of changing attitudes toward national sovereignty and humanitarian intervention. In order to deal with the internal struggles that are now the prevalent form of conflict, it is necessary to allay the root causes of tensions within societies. Means of enforcement must be applied to prevent gross violations of human rights, including genocide. Sutterlin describes the background of innovations that recent crises have imposed on the UN. He analyses how recent reforms have affected the UN's capacity to deal with the security problems of the 21st century. Peacekeeping, peace-enforcement, peace-building, and the application of sanctions all bring new challenges. In one chapter, Sutterlin focuses on the UN's experience in enforcing disarmament in Iraq. A new chapter details the impact of terrorism and weapons of mass destruction on UN policies and actions. This systematic presentation, using scholarly analysis and a practitioner's inside knowledge, should provide a readable and challenging text for courses on the United Nations.

Genocide, Airpower, and Intervention Biblioscholar

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

In response to a question about believing in God, Lieutenant General Romeo Dallaire, commander of the United Nations peace keeping force in Rwanda, known as the United Nations Assistance Mission for Rwanda or UNAMIR, stated that he had shaken hands with the devil in Rwanda, and since he knew the devil existed, he had to believe in God.1 While most Americans simply changed the channel during news broadcasts of the savage violence that decimated Rwanda, the 2,548 members of UNAMIR and the estimated 800,000 people that were murdered during 100 days of organized killing could not. In the aftermath of this tragedy, four clear questions emerge. The first question is why the perpetrators pursued genocide as a final solution. Before answering this question, one must first understand three ingredients that set the stage for selecting genocide as a viable course of action. These include a history of ethnic conflict, devaluation of human life, and a small group that believed in the final solution.

Raphael Lemkin and the Struggle for the Genocide Convention PALGRAVE MACMILLAN

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Now published for the first time in paperback, this is the first comprehensive biography of Raphael Lemkin (1900-59), the man who invented the word genocide and campaigned relentlessly for the United Nations Genocide Convention. Utilising Lemkin's own papers as well as other sources, it contextualises his career, showing how his ideas were formed in the midst of ethnic strife in Eastern Europe and as a member of the international law circuit. The book focuses on the campaign for a convention orchestrated by Lemkin, dealing both with its supporters and enemies, particularly the British government. While Lemkin drew attention to the need to preserve diverse cultures, both in his campaigning and his historical writing, the Western powers amended the convention, so that it became an instrument solely for preventing physical genocide. The book also covers Lemkin's historical research on genocide, presenting a number of studies, particularly of colonial genocide.

Peace and Reconciliation in Rwanda through International Trials LAP Lambert Academic Publishing

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Peace and Reconciliation is very important in post-conflict situations. This book duels on the aspects of peace and reconcilation in Rwanda with the focus being the trials of the United Nations Ad-Hoc Tribunal established to try those who committed crimes of Genocide, war crimes, and Crimes against Humanity. There were trials to put an end to impunity which Rwanda had hitherto known. These trials were aimed at restoring peace and reconciliation in Rwanda in which more than 800,000 people mostly the minority Tutsis or moderate Hutus were killed by the Hutus. The intention of the United Nations establishing the tribunal was to punish those responsible for violation of International Humanitarian Law and Human Rights Laws.In fact, the above objectives to an extend were attained. This pushed the United Nations to create other tribunals like those of Sierra Leone,Khmer Rouge.Then the International Criminal Court was created by State Parties. This book is vital in the sense that International Organizations, Human Rights NGO's and scholars not excluding war torn nations like, the Central African Republic,Burundi undergoing conflicts could learn from the Rwandan genocide in a bid to avoid.

No Enchanted Palace University Press Group Ltd

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

No Enchanted Palace traces the origins and early development of the United Nations, one of the most influential yet perhaps least understood organizations active in the world today. Acclaimed historian Mark Mazower forces us to set aside the popular myth that the UN miraculously rose from the ashes of World War II as the guardian of a new and peaceful global order, offering instead a strikingly original interpretation of the UN's ideological roots, early history, and changing role in world affairs. Mazower brings the founding of the UN brilliantly to life. He shows how the UN's creators envisioned a world organization that would protect the interests of empire, yet how this imperial vision was decisively reshaped by the postwar reaffirmation of national sovereignty and the unanticipated rise of India and other former colonial powers. This is a story told through the clash of personalities, such as South African statesman Jan Smuts, who saw in the UN a means to protect the old imperial and racial order; Raphael Lemkin and Joseph Schechtman, Jewish intellectuals at odds over how the UN should combat genocide and other atrocities; and Jawaharlal Nehru, India's first prime minister, who helped transform the UN from an instrument of empire into a forum for ending it. A much-needed historical reappraisal of the early development of this vital world institution, No Enchanted Palace reveals how the UN outgrew its origins and has exhibited an extraordinary flexibility that has enabled it to endure to the present day.

Rules for the World Cornell University Press

Inne 1

Rules for the World provides an innovative perspective on the behavior of international organizations and their effects on global politics. Arguing against the conventional wisdom that these bodies are little more than instruments of states, Michael Barnett and Martha Finnemore begin with the fundamental insight that international organizations are bureaucracies that have authority to make rules and so exercise power. At the same time, Barnett and Finnemore maintain, such bureaucracies can become obsessed with their own rules, producing unresponsive, inefficient, and self-defeating outcomes. Authority thus gives international organizations autonomy and allows them to evolve and expand in ways unintended by their creators. Barnett and Finnemore reinterpret three areas of activity that have prompted extensive policy debate: the use of expertise by the IMF to expand its intrusion into national economies; the redefinition of the category "refugees" and decision to repatriate by the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees; and the UN Secretariat
