"Ethnic Cleansing" is a Euphemism Used for Genocide Denial
"Ethnic Cleansing" is a euphemism invented by Slobodan Milošević and Serbian propagandists in the 1990's to cover up and deny forced displacement and genocide in Bosnia and Kosovo. It has now become the dominant term used by journalists, foreign ministry lawyers, the UN, and human rights groups to avoid using the term "genocide." Ethnic cleansing is not outlawed by any treaty or by the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court. It is used to avoid the duty to prevent genocide in the Genocide Convention. It is a term that should be expunged from the legal and journalistic lexicon.
