Offer, förövare och den mänskliga essensen: Kulturella perspektiv på folkmord

Rask, Carola LU (2016) SANK02 20161
Social Anthropology
Abstract
This essay will explore which social and cultural mechanisms that legitimatize a group of people to commit genocide by discussing the terms “victimization” and “de-humanization”. The essay starts with a research on the term “genocide”, specifically which groups that are, or are not, protected under the Genocide Convention and moves on to Stuart Kaufmans “symbolic politics theory” to discuss how political leaders can lead their population into extreme violence against an identified enemy group.
