Letter from Prof. Schabas

Dear members of IAGS, Several weeks ago, I wrote to you on behalf of the Executive in order to launch a discussion about merging our Association with the International Network of Genocide Scholars. There has been a lively debate, and many members have submitted their views on the issues. I promised to get back to you with a report at the end of September.

Letter from Prof. Schabas

Dear members of IAGS,

I am writing to you with news of some recent developments in the Association. There is significant progress in several areas. Our website has been totally redesigned, and looks much more professional now. We are well advanced with arrangements for the next conference, which will take place in Buenos Aires in July, and which should be a very fine event. Our finances are in good health after the recovery of a substantial sum of money that was owed to the Association. Earlier this year, the Association was awarded the Republic of Armenia Prize.
