Genocide Studies International journal relaunch announced

PanARMENIAN.Net - The editors of Genocide Studies International (GSI) announced relaunch of the journal, continuing the publishing efforts of the International Institute for Genocide and Human Rights Studies (IIGHRS, a Division of the Zoryan Institute,) and the University of Toronto Press since 2006.

GSI is the official journal of the IIGHRS.

In keeping with the objectives of the IIGHRS to raise awareness by being a bridge between academia and civil society, as well as policy-makers, 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.

GSI will be available online in March 2014 and in print in April 2014.

The first issue will deal with "The Failure of Prevention," focusing on Sudan—Darfur, the Nuba Mountains crisis —and on the politics of prevention or the lack thereof.

The second issue will be a general issue open to articles on all aspects of the phenomenon of genocide, and is scheduled to appear in September 2014.

The third issue, due out in March 2015, will be a special issue on the Ottoman Genocide of Armenians, Assyrians, and Greeks. April 2015 will mark the 100th anniversary of what is generally considered the start of this genocidal process.

The fourth issue, to appear in September 2015, will be a special issue on “The Political Economy of Genocide.”

The International Institute for Genocide and Human Rights Studies (A Division of the Zoryan Institute) is dedicated to scholarly research and dissemination of knowledge regarding the phenomenon of genocide in all of its aspects, to create an awareness of it as an ongoing scourge, and promote the necessity of preventing it.
