The International Network of Genocide Scholars (INoGS) has let me know that it will present me with a Lifetime Achievement Award at the 2022 conference in Mexico City.
I’m deeply honoured and proud to accept, although unfortunately I won’t be present in person (they’ll record an interview with me which will be shown at the conference, which I’ll link to from this site).
Following work on war in the 1980s and 1990s, I published my book War and Genocide in 2003, followed by What is Genocide? in 2007 and Genocide and International Relations in 2013. I attended INoGS’ founding conference in Berlin in 2005, where I began some important friendships as well as professional relationships, and I’ve been involved in the network ever since.
Sadly genocide remains a major contemporary as well as historical question, and the link which my work has made with war is evidently still central, as recent events as well as scholarship are underlining. The award comes with an honorarium, which I shall donate to support Ukrainian refugees.
