Genocide Around the Globe

Genocide is the deliberate decimation of a selected ethnic, religious, or regional group by another for reasons that usually serve to rationalize the extermination for the oppressors. Genocide is considered an international crime. The United Nations Convention for the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide (CPPCG) defines genocide as any of the following acts committed onto an ethnic, racial, religious, or regional group by another: "killing members of the group; causing serious bodily or mental harm to members of the group; deliberately inflicting on the group conditions of life, calculated to bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part; imposing measures intended to prevent births within the group; [and] forcibly transferring children of the group to another group."
