Decades After Genocide: Is Justice Possible?Share:
The Ottoman government’s systematic annihilation of its Armenian population took place 10 decades ago. The Khmer Rouge’s Killing Fields allowed for the massacre of nearly 2 million people four decades ago in Cambodia. These cases of state violence continue to test the international justice system as jurists, activists and politicians attempt to arrive at some definition of implementable justice.

Koumjian was in conversation with USC Professor Hannah Garry. Their topic: Decades After Genocide – Is Justice Possible?
