Week 2 Blog Posts

Blog post (Due 7/15):  The U.N. Convention on Genocide identifies four protected groups (i.e. national, ethnical, racial, or religious). Briefly discuss a human rights case from the last twenty years in which a targeted group is not protected under this declaration (e.g. group targeted based on gender, subsistence, etc.).  Please reference at least one accessible news story to exemplify your point.

Blog post comments (Due 7/17): Do you agree that this group should be included under international genocide law? Why or why not? Can you foresee any problems in including this group as protected under genocide law?
