Crimes Against Humanity

War crimes are violations of the laws and customs of war, which are intended to protect civilians, prisoners of war, and other non-combatants from unnecessary harm during armed conflict.

Such crimes are derived primarily from the Geneva Conventions and the Hague Conventions. Their most recent codification can be found in article 8 of the 1998 Rome Statute.

Genocide refers to acts committed with the intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethnic, racial, or religious group.

These acts can include killing members of the group, causing serious bodily or mental harm, and deliberately bringing about the group’s physical destruction etc.

It was defined under the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide.
