Confronting Genocide: Never Again?


Overview of the Unit – The genocides of the twentieth century elicited feelings of horror and revulsion throughout the world. Yet both the international community and the United States have struggled to respond to this recurring problem.

Confronting Genocide: Never Again? traces the evolution of the international community’s response to genocide and examines how the United States has responded to five cases of
genocide. The evaluation of multiple perspectives, informed debate, and problem solving strategies that comprise this unit enable students to develop their own policy suggestions concerning America’s response to future genocide.
