"Genocidal Conscription" examines the ways by which genocidal states have employed mandatory military service as a tool of genocide. This work applies a comparative study to trace the mechanisms by which states have drafted victims of genocide in two cases. The work contributes a theory and an interpretation of a typology of genocide. Evidence provided in this work supports the argument that certain genocidal states have subverted the institution of conscription into a tool of genocide. The implications consider the types of reform that may now be possible in a time of transition and transformation.
