6th Global Conference on Genocide

INoGS is looking back on a series of successful “Global Conferences on Genocide” (Sheffield 2009, Brighton 2010, San Francisco 2012, Cape Town 2014 and Jerusalem 2016). The Executive Board of the International Network of Genocide Scholars (INoGS) now invites proposals for its 6th Global Conference on Genocide to take place in 2018. We particularly welcome submissions from the Global South.

The proposals should anticipate a conference of a total number of approximately 150, but with sufficient flexibility to accommodate even more presentations if necessary.Proposals should consider the length of the conference, Thursday afternoon to Sunday with approximately 100-150 participants, 40-50 panels, and at least two plenary sessions.

Interested parties or institutions should identify and address the following items for a successful bid to host the conference:

  • Provide a brief overview of any benefits or challenges associated with the conference site, especially as it pertains to the ease of access and cost of travel to the city.
