Regional Perspectives on Atrocity Prevention in Latin America

Invitation Only

Hosted by the Auschwitz Institute for Peace and Reconciliation and the Stanley Center, the dinner will feature the participation of special guest Adama Dieng, Special Adviser to the Secretary General on the Prevention of Genocide, who will make remarks about cooperation efforts in the region. The dinner will serve as an opportunity to discuss the impact of the Latin American Network for Genocide and Mass Atrocity Prevention at the national level, consider options for joint advocacy at the international level, and reflect on the challenges and lessons learned regarding prevention in the region and beyond.

To guide discussion, dinner organizers will share a five-year report developed by the Technical Secretariat of the Latin American Network for Genocide and Mass Atrocity Prevention. This complements ongoing efforts by the Latin American Network’s external partners to provide updates on network activities with UN missions. To explore lessons learned and challenges, guests will also be given key findings from a comprehensive evaluation project carried out from 2015–2017, which assessed the national-level impact of the prevention policy agenda of the Latin American Network.
