Genocide Studies International
Published Biannually | E-ISSN 2291-1855 | ISSN 2291-1847
In keeping with the objectives of the International Institute for Genocide and Human Rights Studies to raise awareness by being a bridge between academia and civil society, as well as policy-makers, Genocide Studies International (GSI) is a journal devoted to innovative research, analysis and information. GSI is a forum for the academic study and understanding of the phenomena of genocide and the gross violation of human rights and various approaches to preventing them. It strives to raise awareness of the necessity of genocide prevention and the promotion of universal human rights. It serves as a critical voice for analyzing governmental and supra-governmental efforts in the prevention of genocide. This peer-reviewed journal is interdisciplinary and comparative in nature. It welcomes submissions on individual case studies, thematic approaches, and policy analyses that relate to the history, causes, impact, aftermath, and all other aspects of genocide.
Genocide Studies International, the official journal of the International Institute for Genocide and Human Rights Studies, is available in print and online.
