What is Genocide and Why is it so bad?Prof. Abed will argue that genocide is a violent process tied in complex ways to war, military occupation, colonization, and nation-state consolidation. According to this view, “ethnic cleansing” and cultural assimilation can be genocidal policies. Although Genocide is not the worst of the international crimes, the Holocaust is morally distinctive.
