The recently coined definition of genocide among scholars and international organizations varies throughout history; however, there is the common understanding that genocide is the intentional destruction of a large group of people who are often associated with a specific origin or denomination. According to the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide (CPPCG), part two, article six, Genocide is any of the following acts committed with intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethnical or religious group such as: killing members of the group, causing serious bodily or mental harm to members of the group, deliberately inflicting on the group conditions of life calculated to bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part, imposing measures intended to prevent births within the group and forcibly transferring children of the group to another group (Prevent Genocide International, 2008). Nature of Crime The mass destruction of a specific group of people often occurs due to instigation experienced by the offenders themselves. Societal difficulties, economic problems such as unemployment and inflation; and political issues such as political chaos can work as a stressor for a group of people. It is the fundamental human needs such as positive identity, control, security, and connection to others that are at risk when a group of people turns to genocide as a solution.
