The paper briefly discusses the concepts of genocide and ethnocide and illustrates them using the examples of the Holocaust and Rwanda. From there, the paper looks at the effectiveness of the international community - specifically the Security Council and the United Nations General Assembly - in combating tragedies like Rwanda; in a related vein, the paper looks briefly at how the international community (albeit there was no United Nations around prior to 1945) also failed European Jewry. In the final analysis, the paper asserts that international agreements and institutions are meaningless unless they have in place practical mechanisms that will make sure rogue states and individuals are held accountable for their actions.
