The Genocide Convention – is ‘specific intent’ obstructing the protection of vulnerable groups?

The Genocide Convention signified an international commitment to prevent genocide and protect human groups. Yet, Cambodia, Rwanda, Bosnia, Darfur, Myanmar and now the persecution of the Uyghurs illustrate a failure to realise this ambition.

This webinar will explore how the Genocide Convention defines genocide and illustrate how the Convention is ill-equipped and unprepared to deal with the reality of modern atrocity.


Joe Collins is a co-founder and Editor of the youth-led initiative, Yet Again. He is currently undertaking a Masters of Law, with a view to specialising in International Criminal Justice. He has been a volunteer working in Holocaust Education for the past four years and combines his passion for genocide prevention and international criminal law to provide insights into what must change for modern atrocity to be adequacately confronted.
