Genocide Studies International

Press Releases


The International Institute for Genocide and Human Rights Studies (A Division of the Zoryan Institute) and the University of Toronto Press are pleased to announce the launch of a new journal, Genocide Studies International. It will have a talented and experienced team of editors, made up of Drs. Maureen Hiebert, Herbert Hirsch, Roger W. Smith and Henry Theriault.

The editors state the journal’s mission as follows: “In keeping with the objectives of the International Institute for Genocide and Human Rights Studies to raise awareness by being a bridge between academia and civil society, as well as policy-makers, Genocide Studies International (“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.”

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

Genocide Studies International, the official journal of the International Institute for Genocide and Human Rights Studies, will be available in print and online. The first issue of Genocide Studies International will appear in March 2014.

Subscribe to Genocide Studies International at the special introductory rate of $40, a 33% discount from the annual subscription rate of $60. This special introductory offer includes online access in addition to the print version of Genocide Studies International for one year.
