DIIS, Holocaust and GenocideDIIS, Holocaust and Genocide, works with processes that lead to genocide with special focus on the role of the state, both in relation to committing genocide and combating it, and the remembrance and commemoration culture that has evolved in the wake of the Holocaust and other instances of genocide.
The research includes studies of European reactions to genocide, historically and in the present; the commemoration culture and the significance of the past in current policies; and philosophical studies of the role and responsibility of the state in relation to genocidal processes.
In addition, we place special emphasis on dissemination, contribution to the public debate, and teaching.
Cecilie Felicia Stokholm Banke, head of the research unit
