It was hard for the people and government to deal with such overwhelming large number of perpetrators, and so the judicial response was to be prevailed in three levels. These levels are, the international criminal tribunal for Rwanda, the national court systems, and the Gacaca court systems. The international criminal tribunal for Rwanda (ICTR) which was initiated by the United Nations security council on 8th, November 1994 and closed on the 31st December 2015. This tribunal had an authority to prosecute people who committed greater responsibilities during the genocide and also any other serious violations of the international humanitarian that were carried out during the Rwandan genocide in
The Germans were unanimously against the Treaty of Versailles. They viewed the terms of the treaty as humiliating and merciless, designed to keep Germany militarily and economically weak. To the Germans, the Treaty of Versailles was not the beginning of the New World that Wilson had promised, but a horrible
The Turks have threatened to close that base, cancel all purchases of American military equipment, boycott American goods and even go as far as passing their own resolution condemning the 19th century massacres of the Native Americans, if the Americans even mention the genocide that took place. Denial is actually a continuation of the genocide itself, because it is a continuing attempt to destroy the victim further psychologically and culturally, to deny its members even the memory
There prevails a wide separation of human relations. Such that many scholars worldwide, including the author of this paper, have tried to research and analyse on the Rwandan genocide and know what really happened to mankind at this dark moments. The difficulty of accepting the cause of the war, its outcome and the challenges associated to it are the major interests of the author of this
Another thing to look at is that Cambodia was a revolution trying to change a societies social norms, where as in the Ottoman Empire, it was a destruction of a people and had truly nothing to do with revolutionist tendencies. The Khmer Rouge truly pushed for the old Khmer Empire that built wondrous buildings such as the Angkor Wat and survived on the agrarianism ideological principles of that time. In conclusion, I think if one is to compare and contrast these two different genocides, one must incorporated Nazi Germany. The reason I believe this is because it creates more similarities Overall, these two genocides are extremely different in this author’s opinion due to one being a revolution and the other being a deliberate
Not only they could not make a large military, they had to pay heavy reparations to the allied countries. Then Hitler rose up to break the treaty of Versailles and brought limited power to the people. That was the positive effect to the German Aryan races. However, the negative effect comes later in the Second World War. What was the cause of Germany’s great loss?
Rough Draft: Genocide Genocide is another common word for “massacre” or “mass murder” that has been used across the world and continues to spread thought the nation rapidly in today’s society. It is also seen as a coordinated plan of different actions aiming at the destruction of essential foundations of the life of national groups, with the aim of annihilating the groups themselves (NA, “What is Genocide”). All around the world people have heard of the Holocaust or Armenian Genocides. These horrific acts have been remembered throughout history for their infamous ways that people were treated and killed.
The Holocaust vs the Armenian genocide What do the death of over six million Jews and the death of over one and a half million Armenians have in common? Genocide. Genocide is one of the ultimate crimes in modern society and in humanity. While all genocides are horrible events in history they do have some distinct differences from one to another. Genocides tear apart families, ethnicities, and countries while they are are happening and for many years to come.
During the colonial era, the boundaries of the English colony were drawn to serve commercial interests, largely without regard for the territorial claims of the indigenous peoples. Nigeria thus became a forced marriage which did not receive the approval of the couples involved. As a result, about 350 ethnic groups comprise the population of Nigeria, and the country’s unity has been consistently under siege. Several attempts at secession have threatened national unity since the origination of Nigeria, the Biafra War being the last large-scale attempt of secessionist movements. Sadly, thus far, it is very disturbing that a majority of Nigerians have become slaves to their ethnic origins, instead of exploiting these diversities towards national
The Native American tribes and the United States have a very long and devastating past. The english came from overseas and started taking the Natives land which they didn’t like. The Colonies did barter with some tribes, but fought for territory with most other tribes. The French even became allies with the Natives to try to defeat us in war. We befriended the Cherokee and a couple other dangerous tribes though in defence of their tactics.
As we look throughout history, governments have implemented policies and are partially responsible for the denial of human rights to a certain group. These groups include Ukrainians and Rwandans. The denial of human rights in these regions not only affect those in the region but internationally. Both Ukrainians and Rwandans were denied their human rights. Ukraine’s hope and will was in the hands of the dictator Joseph Stalin.
Athenian democracy only lasted around two centuries, and the system was introduced in 507 B.C by an Athenian named Cleisthenes. The democratic political system of Athens was often referred to as the "demos", which translates to "the people". This meant that it was governed by the rule of the people of Athens. The three most important parts of the system included the ekklesia (the Assembly), the council of 500 men that represented the ten Athenian tribes (The Boule) and lastly, the popular courts (The Dikasteria) that were filled by citizens and jurors. Although Athens was democratic, this did not mean that there was equality.
Political revolutions recur throughout history when governments don’t meet the needs of their people. During revolutions, there is usually a violent phase. The Reign of Terror and the Dirty War were times of horror, terror, and government reforms. While both revolutions were times of terror and reform, and though there were similarities, there were still many differences. During both the Reign of Terror and the Dirty War, there were many citizen deaths, most for no reason, Yet both revolutions started for or with completely different goals.
“Genocide is not war! It is more dangerous than war!” Raphael Lemkin once proclaimed. Both an event in Rwanda and the Holocaust were genocides. A genocide is the mass murder of a group of people especially those of a certain race or religion.
