Annual Report 2016: Latin American Network for Genocide and Mass Atrocity Prevention

April 2017


Along with our partners, we are proud to update you on the 2016 work of the Latin American Network for Genocide and Mass Atrocity Prevention.

The Latin American Network began its work in 2012, led by the governments of Argentina and Brazil, and now comprises representatives from 17 states in the region. The network’s aims are to build regional and national foundations necessary for the prevention of genocide and mass atrocities, and to empower Latin American states to become leaders in prevention on the international scene.

Among the network’s accomplishments in 2016 were:

  • Completion of the pilot phase of the Raphael Lemkin Seminar.
  • Work on joint initiatives on education, as well as support and dissemination of policies on memory, truth, and justice.
