About this Event

Since WWII and the Holocaust, the global community has proclaimed “never again!” to the potential of other genocides. However, they have occurred and are still occurring in the post-WWII era. Even in the 21st century, we see evidence of genocide and mass atrocities where calculated and systematic processes in the form of ethnic cleansing and/or crimes against humanity have taken place. Since we study and analyze wars and conflicts at the U.S. Naval War College (NWC), the concepts of genocide and mass atrocities are not only highly pertinent but also extremely important in terms of ethical standards in the modern era.

NWC is holding its second annual conference on genocide on Tuesday, October 15, 2019, inviting panelists to focus on Yemen and Syria, among other modern cases. The theme is “Genocide: Definitions, Prevention and Human Rights,” with the sub-theme: “Defining Hate and Extermination.”
