Emerging Scholars

The Emerging Scholars Initiative of the International Association of Genocide Scholars is tasked with deepening the association's relationship with junior scholars and students as well as the general public.  It is also hoped that, through the Emerging Scholars Initiative, the IAGS will increase its engagement with social media. The initiative will promote intellectual exchange between the members of the association and the general public. 

The initiative seeks to encourage student participation in discussions and debates around genocide; to increase the interaction of genocide scholars with the general public; and to provide information and a forum for commentary on current events and academic developments of interest to genocide scholars and non-specialists alike.

The 2015-2017 Emerging Scholars representative is Heitor Loureiro
