Latin American Network for Genocide and Mass Atrocity Prevention: Sixth Focal Points Meeting and Third Raphael Lemkin Seminar
The Third Raphael Lemkin Seminar for the Latin American Network for Genocide and Mass Atrocity Prevention is organized by the Auschwitz Institute for Peace and Reconciliation (AIPR), the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Uruguay, the Stanley Center, and the UN Office of the Special Advisers for the Prevention of Genocide and the Responsibility to Protect.
The sixth gathering of the governmental focal points who are a part of the Latin American Network for Genocide and Mass Atrocity Prevention will provide the necessary space for engaging in meaningful dialogue and advancing concrete ideas and proposals. It will also serve as a follow-up from the previous meeting held in Santiago, Chile (May 2015), and Brasilia, Brazil (December 2015). Each country representative will provide a summary of ongoing national programs pertaining to the Network’s efforts in each country and engage in discussion on the effectiveness of any ongoing practices and national initiatives.
The third seminar is a step forward in the development of a common curriculum on prevention in the region, including reflection upon policies of Memory, Truth and Justice—one of the key topics of the Latin American Network.
