Parliamentary Dialogue: Strengthening Prevention Strategies in Latin America
This dialogue, co-hosted by the Auschwitz Institute for Peace and Reconciliation and the Stanley Center, will explore the role that parliamentarians play in the protection of human rights and atrocity prevention through the development, presentation, and ratification of norms at a national level. The dialogue will identify the most relevant procedures for identifying existing norms on the subject, and determine the next steps for developing a document that compiles and introduces these good practices throughout Latin America.
This work seeks to strengthen existing regional and national mechanisms for genocide and mass atrocity prevention—including the Latin America Network for Genocide and Mass Atrocity Prevention—incorporating significant actors from the legislative bodies of the participating governments who play a key role in the development and sustainability of prevention mechanisms at a national level.
