COMPARATIVE GENOCIDE STUDIES
In the opinion of many members of the international research network City for the Cultures of Peace it is not possible to talk about the harmonious coexistence of different ethnic and religious groups without also examining those forces which undermine peace and bring about mass murders. Focus III includes long-term research projects, conferences, and educational programs not only on genocide studies but also on factors which made the emergence of mass murders possible such as hate, racism, and anti-Semitism. Special attention is given to teaching the teachers about new methods of teaching genocide studies.
