A conversation with Daniel Feierstein, past-President of the International Association of Genocide Scholars [Part II]

In this part II of 2 conversations, Daniel Feierstein discusses: 1) US National Security Doctrine as applied to Latin America and resultant genocides & other grave crimes in the region; 2) The fallacy of treating Auschwitz as “the yardstick” against which other genocides are measured; 3) Reorganizing internal societal relations as the goal of genocides; and 4) The pervasive problem of “the genocidal mind” that frames groups and their identities as “immutable” “fixed” & “permanent”. Daniel Feierstein holds a Ph.D, in Social Sciences by the University of Buenos Aires. He is the Director of the Centre of Genocide Studies at
