2.How did the Khmer Rouge coming to power lead to genocide? In 2007, a Cambodian and international tribunal found the Khmer Rouge guilty of "crimes against humanity, genocide, grave breaches of the Geneva Convention, homicide, torture and religious persecution." 3.Describe a parallel between the actions of the Khmer Rouge in Cambodia and Hitler's actions in Poland. Throughout the 1960s, the country was under the control of a monarch until amilitary coup in 1970. Following the coup, the deposed monarch joined forces with a communist organization, the Khmer Rouge, led by Pol Pot. 4.Could changes to the structure or abilities of the International Court of Justice and International Criminal Court improve their ability to fight war crimes? Both the International Courtof Justice and the International Criminal Court operate independently or in unison with local governments to bring the guilty to justice, operating within the constraints and definitions created during the months following the end of World War II as the international community developed laws and procedures during the Nuremberg Trials and those that followed. 5. Consider the role of race and religion in the genocides discussed. Race was honestly a small part of the genocide as the people involved had no rights in general but some of the races had more power than others.
