CRIM71-105: Genocide - A sociological and criminological approach


This subject is anchored in a set of values that explore the murderous thinking behind genocide - which always involves the designation of others who must be eliminated because they do not, supposedly, belong in a given society. It will equip you with the knowledge, understanding and skills needed to challenge these values in a more effective and successful manner. There will always be acts committed by ordinary humans against other humans that are inhumane in the extreme. These are the acts that society as a whole needs to classify as evil, such as genocide. Without this classification it would seem that true horror of what mankind is capable of cannot be fully comprehended.
