EuropeStop Genocide in the Middle East

Never Again - Breaking the Promise

 

 

Never again—How the international community allowed ISIS/Daesh to commit genocide

ISIS/Daesh is systematically eliminating ethnic, cultural, and religious diversity in Syria and Iraq. Genocide is its weapon of choice. Flawed, anachronistic, and at risk of becoming obsolete, the 1948 Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide is failing to end the slaughter.

As a non-State actor, ISIS/Daesh is committing a new form of genocide. Its campaign against human rights presents complexities unconsidered at the time the law on genocide was introduced. The militant group operates outside the traditional ambit of the Convention.

Never Again presents a comprehensive analysis of the law on genocide. Drawing on evidence of genocide since 1948 and eye witness accounts of ISIS/Daesh atrocities, Never Again demonstrates that the system designed to safeguard the vulnerable offers only illusory protection. With the rise of non-State actors, its capacity to oppose the most egregious violations of human rights is frighteningly limited.

Ewelina Ochab and ADF International provide a blueprint to address the faults in the Convention and to ensure the law on genocide adapts to respond to terrorism. It is time to renew the pledge to stand against genocide, in all its forms.
