Ethnic Violence and Justice: The Debate Over Responsibility, Accountability, Intervention, Complicity, Tribunals, and Truth Commissions
Central European University Press, 2003 - Political Science - 155 pages
How should the outside world have reacted when women and children were herded into churches and burned to death in Rwanda? Or when some 6,000 men were murdered in Srebrenica? This book is based on the transcript of a workshop that brought together human rights researchers, activists, and journalists to explore the many issues surrounding massive violations of human rights that have marred the past century and the international community's inadequate responses to them.
