Q.2 What are the objectives of the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide of 1948? Why should India incorporate legal protections against genocide in its domestic legislation? (10 Marks)

Mentor’s comment-

  • In the intro, mention the background of the convention and India’s role in it.
  • In the body, mention that India has signed and ratified the convention. However, India’s domestic laws lack comparable provisions for the prosecution of any mass crimes, also India is in violation of its international obligation to criminalise genocide, recent legal development in which the Gambia has initiated the proceedings against Myanmar before ICJ on the basis of Convention.
  • Conclude by mentioning that it is more imperative than ever that international legal protections against genocide are incorporated in domestic legislation.
