The Future of Genocide and Crimes Against Humanity April 13

April 12th, 2010 by Adam

Plymouth, N.H.—Adam Jones, associate professor of political science at the University of British Columbia Okanagan, will present the final spring 2010 Sidore Lecture at Plymouth State University at 7 p.m. Tuesday, April 13 at the Silver Center for the Arts.

An internationally recognized expert in Holocaust and genocide studies, Jones will speak on “The Future of Genocide and Crimes Against Humanity.”

He says, “The laws regarding genocide and crimes against humanity are intimately interlinked, arising from the same impulse to establish international humanitarian norms and laws that have developed over the past century.”

Jones will outline the laws pertaining to genocide and crimes against humanity, explore their areas of crossover and mutual influence, and gauge what the future holds in both the legal and social-political spheres for these attempts to grasp and confront some of humanity’s most enduring evils.

The author or editor of dozens of books, Jones’ works include Crimes Against Humanity: a Beginner’s Guide, Genocide: A Comprehensive Introduction and Gendercide and Genocide.

He is the executive director of Gendercide Watch, a Web-based educational initiative that confronts gender-selective atrocities against men and women worldwide.

Free tickets for Adam Jones’ Sidore Lecture are available at the Silver Center Box Office, (603) 535-ARTS (2787) or (800) 779-3869. A reception follows the discussion.

Saul O Sidore Lecture series was established at PSU in 1979 to bring a variety of speakers to the University each year to address the critical political, social and cultural issues and events of our time.
