Lemkin Reunion Remembers Srebrenica

September 2, 2015

The School of Public Policy's Center for Conflict, Negotiation and Recovery (CCNR) is hosting the second annual Lemkin Reunion on October 2. The Lemkin Reunion was established to honor the memory of Raphael Lemkin, a Polish lawyer who is credited with first using the word genocide to denote "the destruction of a nation or an ethnic group." Lemkin, who lost 49 relatives during the Holocaust, campaigned ceaselessly during his life to develop a legal framework to define and criminalize genocide.
