The ending of genocide has been treated in a normative manner with a focus on how it “ought” to end, as opposed to how, empirically, historical and contemporary episodes of genocide have come to an end. Since 2005 the SSRC has hosted a series of academic seminars as well as a web forum examining genocide in an empirical way, which have helped to take the field of genocide studies in a new direction. Working closely with the UN and African Union peace and security departments, we are planning additional seminars and detailed research studies.
