This thesis presents a reflection on the portrayal of women’s experiences in the current available definitions of genocide. It does so, by critically analyzing current and available definitions of genocide utilizing Norman Fairclough’s three-dimensional model for critical discourse analysis. It includes in the critical discourse analysis an analysis of the intersectional gender considerations and observations as well as parts of Carol Bacchi’s WPR approach to problem representation in policy analysis. The findings call for a critical reflection of discourse in problem representation in order to ensure intersectional equality when it comes to women’s experiences of genocide in the prevention and punishment of genocides.
