The United Nations and Genocide considers how the UN has met, and failed to meet, its commitment 'to prevent and punish' genocide since the 1948 Genocide Convention. Examining cases of both failure and success, it explores new UN approaches to genocide prevention, and questions whether they will be more effective.

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

The Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide was the first human rights treaty adopted by the United Nations, reflecting the global commitment to 'never again' in the wake of the Holocaust. Seven decades on, The United Nations and Genocide examines how the UN has met, and failed to meet, the commitment to 'prevent and punish' the crime of genocide. It explores why the UN was unable to respond effectively to the genocides in Cambodia, Rwanda, the Balkans and Darfur, and considers new approaches recently adopted by the UN to address genocide. This volume asks the crucial question: can the UN protect peoples from genocide in the modern world?

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.

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

For over 25 years, The Annual Review of United Nations Affairs (ARUNA) has been the print source for researchers needing a comprehensive document collection that highlights the work of the United Nations' six principal organs each year. Recognized as the only print and bound collection for these documents, ARUNA is an essential reference for academic researchers and policy-makers. Coverage spans important resolutions and decisions, focusing on the significant documents and collaborative work of the United Nations. Selected reports of intergovernmental bodies and expert groups are also included and documents are grouped together by subject matter for easy reference. Each year, a new guest author provides an introduction to the set, analyzing the major themes covered throughout that year. ARUNA provides an in-depth view to an organization that today has more the 63,000 employees located in nearly 175 countries and is responsible for implementing the decisions of the governing bodies. This particular edition (2006-07): The past year has been one of the most tumultuous and challenging in the U.N.'s history and, indeed, in the modern history of the entire globe. This year's edition of ARUNA presents the story of that tumult as well as the story of the U.N.'s efforts to resolve both global conflicts and internal controversy. Specifically, this year's set of volumes includes documents related to the U.N.-based World Food Programme, whose management provoked an international scandal last year. However, most the 2006-07 edition of ARUNA focuses on the more critical issues affecting millions of lives around the world in the past year: the Darfur genocide, climate change, the Palestinian refugee crisis, West Africa's political and social instability. By providing the full text of both the resolutions addressing these topics and the U.N. reports concerning them, ARUNA 06/07 delivers a unique resource for students, scholars, and practitioners. The series' topic-based organization of the materials and subject index lend invaluable guidance to all researchers.

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.

Germany's Genocide of the Herero - 2869593567

Germany's Genocide of the Herero JAMES CURREY PUBLISHERS

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

In 1904, the indigenous Herero people of German South West Africa (now Namibia) rebelled against their German occupiers. In the following four years, the German army retaliated, killing between 60,000 and 100,000 Herero people, one of the worst atrocities ever. The history of the Herero genocide remains a key issue for many around the world partly because the German policy not to pay reparations for the Namibian genocide contrasts with its long-standing Holocaust reparations policy. The Herero case bears not only on transitional justice issues throughout Africa, but also on legal issues elsewhere in the world where reparations for colonial injustices have been called for. This book explores the events within the context of German South West Africa (GSWA) as the only German colony where settlement was actually attempted. The study contends that the genocide was not the work of one rogue general or the practices of the military, but that it was inexorably propelled by Germany's national goals at the time. The book argues that the Herero genocide was linked to Germany's late entry into the colonial race, which led it frenetically and ruthlessly to acquire multiple colonies all over the world within a very short period, using any means available. Jeremy Sarkin is Chairperson-Rapporteur of the United Nations Working Group on Enforced or Involuntary Disappearances, and is at present Distinguished Visiting Professor of Law at Hofstra University in Hempstead, New York. He is also an Attorney of the High Court of South Africa and of the State of New York.

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.

"If You Leave Us Here, We Will Die" Princeton University Press

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

This is a book about a terrible spate of mass violence. It is also about a rare success in bringing such violence to an end. "If You Leave Us Here, We Will Die" tells the story of East Timor, a half-island that suffered genocide after Indonesia invaded in 1975, and which was again laid to waste after the population voted for independence from Indonesia in 1999. Before international forces intervened, more than half the population had been displaced and 1,500 people killed. Geoffrey Robinson, an expert in Southeast Asian history, was in East Timor with the United Nations in 1999 and provides a gripping first-person account of the violence, as well as a rigorous assessment of the politics and history behind it. Robinson debunks claims that the militias committing the violence in East Timor acted spontaneously, attributing their actions instead to the calculation of Indonesian leaders, and to a 'culture of terror' within the Indonesian army. He argues that major powers - notably the United States, Australia, and the United Kingdom - were complicit in the genocide of the late 1970s and the violence of 1999. At the same time, Robinson stresses that armed intervention supported by those powers in late 1999 was vital in averting a second genocide. Advocating accountability, the book chronicles the failure to bring those responsible for the violence to justice. A riveting narrative filled with personal observations, documentary evidence, and eyewitness accounts, "If You Leave Us Here, We Will Die" engages essential questions about political violence, international humanitarian intervention, genocide, and transitional justice.

"This book sets out ideas on how the international community can better detect and act on the warning signs of genocide. It is a timely and welcome contribution to the debate on what may be the most pressing moral issue of our time." Kofi A. Annan, Secretary-General of the United Nations "This slim volume is full of fascinating insights at the intersection of scholarship and policymaking." Graham Allison, Harvard University Alexander L.

Also included is a preview of new work on genocide and early warning that Alex George is developing with David A. Hamburg, former president of the Carnegie Corporation of New York.
