Genocide has plagued societies around the world for centuries. One Binghamton University alum is working to eradicate the tragic practice.

"Most people associate prevention with stop the killing once it starts.
We have to make prevention about breaking down the processes that result in the killing before they start," said Owen Pell, Partner, White & Case Law Firm.
