Abstract:

This article examines certain semantic ambiguities in interpretations of the legal duty to prevent genocide in the Genocide Convention, and their political implications. Its main focus is on allegedly already unfolding genocidal situations, such as in Darfur from 2003 to 2005. The study analyses representations of responses to genocide with particular attention to the combinations ‘preventing’, ‘suppressing’, ‘stopping’ and ‘halting’ genocide. Underlying the investigation are questions concerning the relationship between international law and political responses to genocide.
