WELCOME to the Institute for the Research of Genocide Canada
On behalf of the Institute for Research of Genocide (Canadian Branch), as well as on my own behalf, it is both an honour and a pleasure to extend to you my most sincere welcome! This website is committed to informing you of the relevant academic, social, and all other activities of the Institute, in a thorough and timely fashion.
The Institute makes up part of the Institute for Research of Crimes against Humanity and International Law University of Sarajevo. As an academic institution, the Institute is dedicated to scientific research on crimes against humanity and international law. Specifically, our goal is to document and accurately illustrate all materials related to acts of Genocide. While demonstrating these facts we encourage and support academic and scientific dialogue on the matter based on democratic principles and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. As a scientific organization, we are apolitical. Our aspirations are moral and humanitarian in nature and we only differentiate between justice and injustice.
The Institute experience and knowledge acquired in the area of studying the holocaust, genocide, and other forms of crimes against humanity and international law, constitute a relevant basis for profiling and leading all scientific, thus educational, current and future projects of the Institute, and its scientific-based activities. The Institute shall pay special attention to the education and further development of young scholars in the area of studying the holocaust, genocide, and other forms of crimes against humanity and international law.
We stand in solidarity for all genocide victims and assert that in order to prevent further genocides in the world, it is crucial that we take upon ourselves the responsibility to raise awareness by furthering understanding as well as condemning the atrocities inflicted on the Bosnian people in the the 20th century.
