The International Crime of Genocide-The Case of the Tamil People in Sri Lanka
Uploaded Date: 21/04/2013
Genocide is the ultimate crime under international law, a crime against humanity. Bringing forward charges of genocide is a grave accusation.

This study will not set out to determine individual guilt since this would require a thorough judicial investigation. Rather, based on the legal definition of genocide and on sociological approaches on the genocidal process and the so-called genocidal society, it will focus on two interrelated issues.
