Genocide and Religion: Victims, Perpetrators, Bystanders, and Resisters
February 11-13, 2007
This unique conference - jointly organized by the Simon Wiesenthal Center and the Pepperdine University School of Law - focused on the intersection between genocide and religion. It emphasized the roles played by perpetrators, victims, bystanders, and resisters during the genocides of the 20th and 21st centuries, genocides that began with Armenia and unfortunately continue to this day in Sudan. The conference examined what role law should play in mediating this intersection between religion and genocide.
