The International Network of Genocide Scholars (INoGS) emerged from a conference in Berlin in January 2005 with the goal to provide Genocide Studies with a non-partisan forum through which to present research and analysis on any aspect of genocide and other forms of collective violence. Recent symposia on genocide and mass violence, as manifested in the series of Global Conferences organized by INoGS since in Sheffield (2009), Brighton (2010), San Francisco (2012), Cape Town (2014), Jerusalem (2016), and Marseilles (2018) have witnessed scholarly engagement with, and debates around, a range of issues of fundamental importance to the field.
INoGS’ journal, the Journal of Genocide Research (JGR), is a peer reviewed, cross-disciplinary journal that promotes the scholarly study of genocide and related phenomena, like crimes against humanity, war crimes, and violence against civilians. It publishes articles on the history of these phenomena from all periods. Genocide is a contested legal, historical, sociological and political term that is applied in various spheres: in international law, in academic analyses of genocide, past and present, and in political claim making. The JGR welcomes contributions that combine empirical research with conceptual reflection on these and related topics, like para- and pre-genocidal policies and practices, humanitarian intervention, military sociology, post-genocide, as well as gender, trauma, and memory issues. As cross-disciplinary, the Journal of Genocide Research is open to all relevant scholarly methods and disciplines. All research articles undergo rigorous peer review, based on initial editor screening and anonymized refereeing by at least two external scholars. Reflection Articles, Forums, and Book Forums are reviewed by the Editorial board. The journal is published quarterly by Taylor and Francis, world leaders in academic publication. A yearly subscription is free with INoGS membership. The JGR can be accessed here: https://www.tandfonline.com/toc/cjgr20/current
