USHHM event Genocide in an Age of Terror: The Challenge of Protecting Civilians and Preventing Atrocities

December 6, 2016 @ 7:00 pm

Stream the program live at ushmm.org/watch.  Registration is not required to live-stream the program.

ISIS has threatened global security by capturing territory, enslaving minorities, and killing civilians. It has targeted ethnic and religious minorities in Iraq and Syria, prompting the US government to declare that the terrorist group is committing genocide. These atrocities have spurred the current tide of refugees that is overwhelming Europe and has left hundreds of thousands of people displaced.

Non-state actors such as ISIS, al-Qaeda, and Boko Haram have changed our understanding of who perpetrates mass atrocities. The international community has a range of traditional military, diplomatic, and economic tools at its disposal to respond to these killings. But how do these options differ in responding to terror groups and preventing further atrocities? Cameron Hudson, director of the Simon-Skjodt Center for the Prevention of Genocide, will join expert panelists for a discussion moderated by Clifford Chanin of the National September 11 Memorial & Museum.
