Murder, extermination, enslavement, ethnic cleansing, rape, and torture: when carried out in a widespread or systematic way, these constitute ‘crimes against humanity’. And the international community still has a long way to go to eradicate them. In examples ranging from the genocide in Darfur and Rwanda, to the sex trade of Eastern Europe, to the use of torture on detainees, Jones recounts touching real-life stories from victims and survivors of crimes against humanity worldwide. This guide outlines the history and current extent of key crimes against humanity, investigates the current stumbling blocks which prevent full compliance with international law, and highlights many of the success stories. Adam Jones is Associate Professor at the University of British Columbia, Canada. He is executive director of Gendercide Watch and is Head of ‘Genocide’ the lead international journal on the subject.
