Conversations in Conflict Studies with Owen Pell

204 Maxwell Hall

Add to: Outlook, ICal, Google Calendar

Genocide & Mass Atrocity Prevention:  Emerging Infrastructures and Practices.” Guest Speaker: Owen Pell is a Partner at White & Case LLP.
The last 15-20 years has seen the field of genocide and mass atrocity prevention emerge from the broader field of human rights studies.  Prevention studies aim to move beyond how and which rights are defined and recognized under international law, and crisis intervention.  By contrast, prevention studies focuses on better identifying, measuring, and interdicting or interrupting the processes which result in outbreaks of genocide and mass atrocity crimes, and on making societies more resilient in preventing outbreaks of genocide or mass atrocity violence.  This new focus, which has paralleled the UN’s focus on the Responsibility to Protect, has begun to foster new infrastructure for addressing genocide prevention, and new practices for engaging within government, among governments, and, among corporations, civil society, and governments.  

Conversations in Conflict Studies is a weekly educational speaker series for students, faculty, and the community. The series, sponsored by PARCC, draws its speakers from Syracuse University faculty, national and international scholars and activists, and PhD students. Pizza is served.
