60 Years Genocide Convention
There is an undisputable gap between the popular perception and rigid legal analysis of genocide. We need to achieve a proper balance between inflation of the concept (calling each and every massacre ‘genocide’) and making the concept practically redundant. Solid scientific analysis and dissemination of the results are key instruments to accomplish this goal. An interdisciplinary encounter between historical and legal disciplines appears to be indispensable. The common denominator of all lectures during this conference is the interplay between historical and legal perspectives, the confrontation between real life experiences and court room realities.
