Whatever your personal word of the year may be, some words tend to be more broadly significant and influential, according to the world’s most prominent dictionaries. These are the terms that might refer to a cultural zeitgeist, a controversy or our larger thoughts (and often anxieties) about the world.

Cambridge Dictionary and Collins Dictionary recently revealed their words of the year for 2023, and they have all these components.

ETHNIC CLEANSING
Definition (UN.org)

As ethnic cleansing has not been recognized as an independent crime under international law, there is no precise definition of this concept or the exact acts to be qualified as ethnic cleansing.
A United Nations Commission of Experts mandated to look into violations of international humanitarian law committed in the territory of the former Yugoslavia defined ethnic cleansing in its interim report S/25274 as "… rendering an area ethnically homogeneous by using force or intimidation to remove persons of given groups from the area." In its final report S/1994/674, the same Commission described ethnic cleansing as “… a purposeful policy designed by one ethnic or religious group to remove by violent and terror-inspiring means the civilian population of another ethnic or religious group from certain geographic areas.”

@Buttless I'm sure anyone in Ukraine or Palestine could give a definition, and graphic examples of why it should be a war crime.

@Buttless Fact so you believe.
This is clearly a hidden political statement.
Gosh. Stop it. Please
