MIGS' approach is comparative and historical, involving scholars in Canada, France, Great Britain, Israel, and the United States. Through its Occasional Paper Series and its web site, it collects and disseminates knowledge created by researchers about the historical origins of the mass killings that have become such a prominent part of our time. MIGS also accomplishes its mission through teaching, workshops, conferences, and publications. Additional information and web links are made available on this Web site. MIGS seeks to encourage research by offering its resources and its hospitality to Concordia students and faculty, as well as post-doctoral fellows and colleagues visiting from other universities and research centres. You are welcome to propose Occasional Papers, new web links, and news items for inclusion on this site. MIGS activities are supported by private donations and outside grants.
