Genozide against Yazidis
This article first demonstrates why the acts of ISIS against the Yazidi Community indeed qualify as genocide according to the Genocide Convention (II.). It will then be examined which obligations follow from this reasoning for Austria – as a Party to the Convention – regarding ISIS fighters who have been apprehended on Austrian territory after returning from the war (III.). Finally, the relevant domestic legislation and practice will be analysed to assess whether Austria is meeting its international obligations (IV.).
