What is the responsibility of the international community when mass murder and genocide occurs? The legacy of the Armenian Genocide lives on more than 100 years after its end. We will examine the events leading up to the systematic murder of over one million Armenians, and the role of justice and judgement in the aftermath of such atrocity. We will also reflect on the implications of the Armenian Genocide as it informs the challenges faced by those responding to ongoing human rights crises plaguing the world today.
