The Hudson Institute is hosting a panel discussion on the aspect of crimes of terrorism and genocide in the battle against ISIS. Pari Ibrahim of the Free Yezidi Foundation and Naomi Kikoler of the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum will join Hudson Institute’s Eric B. Brown to assess how adherents of the Islamic State movement can be brought to justice for their crimes of genocide, how the safety of vulnerable minority communities can be ensured as Iraq rebuilds, the unique stabilization needs of Ninevah where most minorities live, and what role the U.S. should play in preventing genocide in the future.
