Genocide Studies International

The official journal of the International Institute for Genocide and Human Rights Studies

"Today, one can look with some satisfaction on the increasing emergence of scholarship and the scientific study of genocide, and therefore one may also dare to begin to think of the possibilities for preventing genocide. It is for these reasons that we are especially pleased to see the synergies of our relationship with the IIGHRS, with whom we share a deep commitment to the study and genocide of all peoples, in the establishment of this new journal."
- Israel W. Charny, President of IAGS

Meet the Editors

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.

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. 



The journal is available online and in print.
