Il genocidio fra memoria, diritto e manipolazione politica

May 29, 2019 Violence & Security Human Security

Nonostante l'adozione di un'apposita Convenzione da parte delle Nazioni Unite nel 1948, l'impiego del termine 'genocidio' continua a generare confusione e ambiguità – non solo in ambito legale – come sottolineato da Marzia Ponso, ricercatrice e docente di Storia contemporanea presso l'Università degli Studi di Torino. Se la Convenzione riporta infatti una definizione ristretta, che esclude le vittime appartenenti a minoranze politiche, i tribunali penali internazionali degli anni novanta hanno fornito una ridefinizione più ampia del fenomeno. Se la distinzione rispetto al 'democidio' appare netta, il riconoscimento di molte tragedie storiche come genocidio risulta ancora foriero di scontri e divisioni profonde.

Whither EU–Russia Relations?

Apr 8, 2019 Violence & Security Irina Busygina T.notes

Today, relations between Russia and the European Union are in a deep and protracted crisis: what started as a project of high hopes, ambitions and enthusiasm in the early 1990s is now associated with deep disappointment, despite the geographical proximity and economic interdependence that arguably compel both sides to cooperate. Why has the relationship between Russia and the EU deteriorated so quickly and seemingly irreversibly – at least in the short and medium term?
