Aims of the Journal of Genocide Research

Journal of Genocide Research is a cross-disciplinary journal that promotes the scholarly study of genocide.

Genocide is a contested legal, historical, sociological and political term that is applied in various spheres: in international law, in academic analyses of genocide, past and present, and in political claim making. Journal of Genocide Research welcomes contributions that combine empirical research with conceptual reflection on these and related topics, like social psychology, military intervention, post-genocide conflict management as well as gender and memory issues.

All submissions undergo rigorous peer review, based on initial editor screening and anonymized refereeing by two external scholars.
