October 13-17, 2014 | Auschwitz, Poland | Mass Violence and Atrocities

Latin American Network Training Seminar on Mass Atrocity Prevention

Invitation Only

The Stanley Center in collaboration with the Auschwitz Institute for Peace and Reconciliation and the United Nations Office of the Special Advisor for the Prevention of Genocide will host the second Latin American Network Training Seminar on Genocide Prevention. The training will be held in Auschwitz, Poland, and will include the Latin American Atrocity Prevention Focal Points and Government officials from the Human Rights and Foreign Affairs ministries.

The training is designed to familiarize participants with the concept of genocide, its relation to the broader category of atrocity crimes, and the processes by which genocide occurs.  In addition, the training is to empower participants with the practical competencies (knowledge and skills) necessary to develop the means to identify and deter the potential for genocide, limit genocide as it unfolds, and engage in the best practices of post-conflict peacebuilding that aim to prevent the future occurrence of atrocity crimes in a post-conflict society.
