Genocide, State Crime and the Law takes an innovative new approach. It argues that we must consider the role of institutions and not just the individual perpetrators, and indeed how the state harnesses these institutions and the law, in what the book describes as terrible acts of nation building. Jennifer Balint analyses in detail these social, political and legal intersections in both the perpetration of genocide and state crime and the post conflict redress of these crimes, showing how law can both be companion to state crime and also be used to constitute and reconcile the new society. This analysis uses extensive case studies of a range of state crimes including the Armenian genocide, the Holocaust, the Rwandan genocide, the South African Apartheid, and state crimes in Cambodia, Ethiopia, and the former Yugoslavia. This book is a valuable new contribution to the understanding of this critical socio-legal area of study. Genocide, State Crime and the Law introduces a number of new concepts including the idea of civic liability for institutions involved in state crime. It will be a vital new resource for academics, students and policy makers across the fields of criminology, law, human rights, sociology, political science, peace and conflict studies. It is also a book very accessible to the general reader.
