I had the privilege of giving the 2022 Nanovic Forum Lecture, at which I spoke about the repeated failure to avert genocide in places like Europe’s Balkans and now in Xinjiang, China. I outlined the Genocide Amendments, which were pioneered through UK Parliament in 2021, and how the regimes in Russia and China undermine the UN Genocide Convention.
Alton also covers such topics as upholding the rule of law, the international community’s ability to bring to justice the perpetrators of atrocity crimes, and why “never again” happens all over again.
The Nanovic Institute deepens The University of Notre Dame’s rich tradition of connections to Europe by bringing prominent figures to campus in a wide range of fields to explore, discuss, and debate the most pressing questions about Europe today. Generously sponsored by Robert and Elizabeth Nanovic, the Forum invites its distinguished guests to interact with Notre Dame in ways they most wish, which can be surprising.
