Abstract

THE Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide continues to play an important role in international litigation. Recent cases have demonstrated anew states' willingness to make use of its compromissory clause and erga omnes partes obligations to protect groups from genocide. However, they also demonstrate that making good on the promise of the Convention—and what it means to enforce fundamental community norms—remains challenging and continues to reflect unequal power dynamics inherent in the international legal system.
