Welcome to A World on Its Knees
Welcome to my new blog. A World on Its Knees is a blog focusing on responses to conflict, genocide, and crimes against humanity. I expect the content to evolve as I become more experienced with blogging.
So for this first post, here is some food for thought: Is mediation ever appropriate after genocide? What other techniques can be used to bring peace to societies?
I was thinking about this because of an article I read in the Washington Post this week about the last survivor of the Armenian genocide in a now-Kurdish town in Turkey. The fact is that genocide usually results in a society split in two: former victims and former killers. These people have to live side by side, often for the rest of their lives. Read the article. Then let me know what you think.
