Abstract

The article explores  the League of Nations’ rescue misson of Armenian genocide survivors and the making of modern humanitarianism and human rights thinking. The authors introduce the possibility that contemporary human rights thinking took place within the practice of humanitarianism in the interwar period and at the intersection of refugees, colonialism, and the non-West, refining thereby the prevailing narrative of the history of human rights, which places much of its emphasis on the post–World War II era, the international reaction to the Holocaust, and the founding of the United Nations.
