The Council of Macquarie University formally establishes the Centre for Comparative Genocide Studies (CCGS) under the leadership of Professor Tatz. The CCGS occupies three rooms in the Department of History, Philosophy and Politics at Macquarie University. The Centre’s scope is interdisciplinary: its teaching and research encompasses domestic and international law, sociology, anthropology, psychology, history, geography, biology, medicine (including psychiatry and the para-medical fields), agriculture, education, music, literature and art, modern languages, theology, politics, philosophy and ethics. The Centre is the third of its kind in the world, following the lead set by Frank Chalk and Kurt Jonassohn of the Montreal Institute for Genocide and Human Rights Studies and Israel Charny of the Institute on the Holocaust and Genocide in Jerusalem.
