Genocide and Political Groups

David L. Nersessian

  • Most comprehensive and detailed empirical study undertaken to date on the application of the concept of genocide to political groups
  • Draws on thorough analysis of customary international law, including domestic legislation on genocide from some 84 states, together with nearly every domestic and international case that has applied the concept
  • Offers a new theoretical understanding of genocide as a rights-based offence
  • Includes data tables setting out international participation in the Genocide Convention on a nation-by-nation basis, summaries of the various groups covered by domestic genocide legislation, and other relevant information, making this book a major reference work on genocide
