This highly original work provides a thought-provoking and valuable resource for researchers and academics with an interest in genocide, criminology, international organizations, and law and society. In her book, Caroline Fournet examines the law relating to genocide and explores the apparent failure of society to provide an adequate response to incidences of mass atrocity. The work casts a legal perspective on this social phenomenon to show that genocide fails to be appropriately remembered due to inherent defects in the law of genocide itself. The book thus connects the social response to the legal theory and practice, and trials in particular. Fournet's study illustrates the shortcomings of the Genocide Convention as a means of preventing and punishing genocide as well as its consequent failure to ensure the memory of this heinous crime.

This book explores the ambiguities of the French law of genocide by exposing the inexplicable dichotomy between a progressive theory and an overly conservative practice. Based on the observation that the crime of genocide has remained absent from French courtrooms to the benefit of crimes against humanity, this research dissects the reasons for this absence, reviewing and analysing the potential legal obstacles to the judicial use of the law of genocide before contemplating the definitional impact of this judicial reluctance and the consequent confusion between the two crimes. Whilst it uses the French law of genocide and related case law on crimes against humanity as its focal points, the book further adopts a more general standpoint, suggesting that the French misunderstandings of the crime of genocide might ultimately be symptomatic of a more widespread misconception of the crime of genocide as a crime perpetrated against 'a group'.

This book examines the position of ‘contextual elements’ as a constitutive elementof the legal definition of the crime of genocide, and determines the extent to whichan individual génocidaire is required to act within a particular genocidal context. Unlike other books in the field of the study of the crime of genocide, this book capturesthe nuance and the complex issues of the debate by providing a book-length comprehensiveexamination of the position of contextual elements in light of the evolution ofgenocide as a concept and the literal legal definition of the crime of genocide, whichexpressly characterized the crime with only the existence of an individualistic intentto destroy a group. With scholars of international criminal law, students, researchers, practitioners inthe field, and international criminal tribunals in mind, the author tackles many ofthe issues raised on the position of contextual elements in both academic literatureand judicial decisions. Nasour Koursami is the Director of Applied Research and a Lecturer at the NationalSchool of Administration in Chad. He studied law at Cardiff and Bristol Universitiesand holds a Ph.D. in International Law from the University of Edinburgh.

On the centennial of the acts commonly referred to as the Armenian Genocide, academics and professionals from a variety of disciplines discuss the impact of the Genocide in their respective fields. In this volume, they assess why it still remains relevant to discuss the Genocide today, as well as its global ramifications and its equally long-lasting mark. Some contributions make the case for the use of aspects of the Armenian Genocide for comparative studies, in order to study the emergence of patterns between conflicts. Others focus on the impact of the Genocide on their specific fields of study. Tackling this theme from the perspective of history, law, sociology, anthropology, political science, literature, education and media studies, The Armenian Genocide Legacy relies on an interdisciplinary approach to expose the complexity of the genocidal process, while marking the centennial of the Armenian Genocide.
