Genocide in an Age of Terror

ISIS has threatened global security by capturing territory, enslaving minorities and killing civilians. It has targeted ethnic and religious minorities in Iraq and Syria, prompting the U.S. government to declare that the terrorist group is committing genocide.

The international community has a range of traditional military, diplomatic and economic tools at its disposal to respond to these killings. But do these options work when responding to non-state actors such as ISIS, al-Qaeda and Boko Haram, and do they prevent further terrorist atrocities? Naomi Kikoler, deputy director of the Simon-Skjodt Center for the Prevention of Genocide, joins expert panelists for a discussion moderated by Clifford Chanin of the 9/11 Memorial & Museum.

This program is co-presented with the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum.

Speakers:
Naomi Kikoler, deputy director of the Simon-Skjodt Center for the Prevention of Genocide
Farah Pandith, adjunct senior fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations
Pari Ibrahim, executive director and founder of the Free Yezidi Foundation
