First, we explore eliminationism and genocide in the twentieth and twenty-first century. And address how to prevent and hold those responsible, accountable. We are joined by Daniel Jonah Goldhagen, author of Worse Than War: Genocide, Elimination-ism, and the Ongoing Assault on Humanity.[ dur: 16mins. ]

Next, although governments rarely apologize for crimes committed against humanity or other injustices that they have perpetrated, our guest suggests official apologies are meaningful; they help to change the terms and meanings of national membership. We are joined by Melissa Nobles author of The Politics of Official Apologies. [ dur: 10 mins. ]

Then, on the Scholar’s Circle panel, we look at genocides. What are the causes and how we can prevent them. [ dur: 28 mins. ]
