Law, government students team up to assist Israeli university center in raising awareness of genocide
By: Liberty University News Service
The word “genocide” derives from the Greek word “genos” (race) and the Latin verb “cide” (to kill), but this vile crime against humanity wasn’t reserved for the past. It still happens today in many countries.
In an effort to understand, mitigate, and raise awareness of this heinous evil, undergraduate and graduate students from the Helms School of Government and the Liberty University School of Law collaborated with Ariel University, an Israeli institution, during the fall semester to conduct research and submit database entries for Ariel University’s Center for the Research and Study of Genocide.
From Liberty’s campus, law students analyzed different cases of genocide from an international legal perspective, and government students focused on the policy and historical implications of genocide. They examined multiple cases of genocide, including the Holocaust, the Armenian genocide, and cases in Guatemala, Sudan, Iraq, and more.
