It was always understood by me that there had to be one universally accepted standard definition of genocide but this course managed in changing that by revealing that such differences in definitions originate from the contrast in the purpose of the definers, contrast between scholarly concepts and legally specified definitions, and due to myriad political processes involved in devising an international convention (ISG, 2005). It is suggested by Fein that the deliberate action taken by a perpetrator to physically harm a collectivity either directly or indirectly is called genocide and it is an action which is sustained regardless of the surrender and no matter if the victim appears to be lacking threat or not (Fein, 1993). A more comprehensive and specific definition of genocide was presented by the UN Genocide Convention in 1951 according to which, any act like murdering members of a certain racial, national, or ethnic group, inflicting not only physical but mental harm to the group, taking steps to prevent birth within that group, or transferring the children of that group to another against the wish of the prior group’s members would be defined by genocide (cited in ISG, 2005). During my study of genocide, quite a many things struck me as interesting. Contrasting the views of different writers with UN in regards to defining genocide managed in gaining my attention. In this way, my knowledge also increased tremendously as the academic strategy of consulting definition offered by any one scholar keeps the knowledge limited and prevents it from expanding as it does when myriad schools of thoughts are consulted and assessed. I read about the 8 stages of genocide by Genocide Watch, an organization from Netherlands (January, 2007, p. 114), which made me feel quite enlightened as this gave me a deep insight into Another eye-catching bit was related to acknowledging how genocide as an object of activism developed in a parallel fashion with the development of human rights. Before studying genocide in depth from both sociological and historical perspectives, I used to think that it is just another form of human rights violation. Now I know that genocide is distinguished and differentiates sufficiently from other violations. It was also interesting to stretch my imagination to think about what possible contributions could be made by the international human rights management in preventing genocide. Interestingly I realized that commitment and concern was promised by the members of the Stockholm International Forum 2004: Preventing Genocide: Threats and Responsibilities in regards to strictly preventing the repeated occurrence of mass murder and ethnic cleansing (Prevent Genocide International, 2004). It is suggested that to the increasing signs of genocide, “neither the United Nations Secretariat, nor the Security Council, nor Member States in general, nor the international media, paid enough attention” (Prevent Genocide International, 2004). The experiences were analyzed sufficiently which gave me an insight into how I myself might change things or even myself in regards to preventing the ethnic cleansing or killing of racial, religious, or ethnic groups. I suppose that such practical tools or strategies should be developed and used which could detect, monitor, report, and prevent any genocidal threat to humanity and society so as to restrict the recurrence of this crime against humanity. Respect and dialogue should be promoted so as to promote every culture and minimize any genocidal prospect (ICRC, 2010). About changing myself, I think that I have to commit myself to the
