Hello sociology-fans! This week we’ve got sociological research on peace and conflict in Northern Ireland, morality and monetary exchanges, and why legal doctrines are not enough to stop genocide.
“Naming, Blaming, and Claiming Legal Protection from Genocide,” by Brooke Chambers. New research in Genocide Studies and Prevention finds that the existence of legal protections does little to stop genocide without states and international organizations upholding their commitments.
“Discrimination During Legal Border Crossings,” by Javiera Lamoza Osorio. The Chicago Tribune features research by Alexander Updegrove, Joshua Shadwick, Eryn O’Neal, and Alex Piquero about discrimination during legal border crossings.
