Hastings International and Comparative Law Review


David Kader


Since the end of World War II, many scholars have devoted their efforts to the prevention of genocide and the punishment of its perpetrators. This Bibliography lists and describes the major writings pertaining to law and genocide and reviews how these works have been reflected in the enforcement of human rights. The author notes that, just as writings on genocide have moved from broad statements of human rights to discussions of how these rights should be enforced, international law should no longer focus on creating rights, but should focus on enforcing them. The author also proposes that more study be devoted to the role of the legal profession in preventing genocide.
