In 1951 the Genocide Convention pledged to abolish all cruel and unfair forms of torture and death to innocent civilians for religious, national and ethnic reasons. 67 years after its ratification, we seem to be witnessing more international criminal trials for crimes against humanity than ever before. The recent alarming rise in such cases calls into question the morality and punishment of genocide. What impact does the Genocide Convention still have in today's challenging international climate? Is the crime of genocide simply too complex and too 'evil' to punish appropriately? This article provides an in-depth examination of the offence of genocide, and an analysis of the jurisprudential issues relating to the punishment of genocide. Is it possible to punish genocide appropriately?
