The Stanley Foundation
Seeking a secure peace with freedom and justice, built on global citizenship and effective global governance.
Launch of Mediterranean Basin Network

October 22, 2019 - October 23, 2019

Bucharest, Romania

The Stanley Foundation, in partnership with the Auschwitz Institute for Peace and Reconciliation with regional leadership from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Romania, will hold the first launch meeting of the Mediterranean Basin Network for Atrocity Crimes Prevention on October 21–23, 2019, in Bucharest, Romania.

This mechanism is intended to support regional policymakers in building capacity and developing policies in the field of atrocity crimes prevention (including war crimes, crimes against humanity, and genocide), drawing on best practices from other regions, and taking into account specific local expertise. In October 2019, representatives from several governments in the region will meet. The objective of this meeting is to present the concept of the Network and discuss States’ potential interest in engaging with it, as well as possible points of interest for a common agenda. 

This new network will be the only one of its kind, filling a critical gap by supporting Network Participants to build capacity to develop national and regional policy for atrocity crimes prevention and to coordinate and implement such policies over time.
