'Belsen '92': Twenty Years of Genocide Arguments and Bosnia

Prof James Gow (King's College London) discusses the genocide in the former Yugoslavia.

Twenty years after pictures of emaciated bodies at the barbed wire fences of camps in northern Bosnia shocked the world and prompted newspaper headlines recalling the Nazi era, arguments about ethnic cleansing and genocide continue. In politics, academia, and in international courts, 'ethnic cleansing' and genocide in Bosnia have been contested. Prof James Gow discusses the Trial of General Ratko Mladic at the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia which offers the last chance for this issue to be addressed in the right way.
James Gow is Professor of International Peace and Security, King's College London. He was the first witness to appear before the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia, where he served as an expert advisor and expert witness for the Office of the Prosecutor. His publications include 'War and War Crimes', published later this year, 'The Serbian Project and Its Adversaries: a Strategy of War Crimes' and 'Triumph of the Lack of Will: International Diplomacy and the Yugoslav Crisis'.
This is the second in a series of lectures on genocide after 1945 which began with the launch of Prof Philip Spencer's book, Genocide since 1945, on 27 September.
