Wolfe, Patrick (2006) Settler colonialism and the elimination of the native. Journal of Genocide Research, 8 (4). pp. 387-409. ISSN 1462-3528


The article explores the relationship between genocide and the settler colonialism. The author asserts that though the settler-colonial logic of elimination has manifested as genocidal-they should be distinguished. The article further analyzes the negative and positive dimensions of settler colonialism. While on the one hand it attempts to dissolve native societies, it also establishes a new colonial society on the seized land base.
