Studi-studi tentang kekerasan 1965 telah memberikan tawaran insight yang keluar dari teori-teori genosida dan kekerasan yang berpusat pada Barat -- atau lebih spesifik lagi, berpusat pada Holocaust. Salah satu ciri utama yang dapat dielaborasi lebih lanjut terkait ‘kekhasan’ Indonesia adalah independensi negara dalam mengeksekusi kekerasan.  Edisi Jurnal Sejarah Vol. 4 Nomor 2 Tahun 2021 mengangkat perhatian terkait peristiwa tersebut dalam rangkaian artikel dan wawancaranya.
