Focal Points Meeting of the Latin American Network for Genocide and Mass Atrocity Prevention

October 28, 2019 - October 29, 2019

Asunción, Paraguay

The Stanley Foundation and the Auschwitz Institute for Peace and Reconciliation (AIPR), in collaboration with the U.N. Office of the Special Adviser on the Prevention of Genocide, will bring together key members of the Latin American Network for Genocide and Mass Atrocity Prevention (LAN) in this tenth meeting of the Network’s Focal Points.

This meeting will focus its segments to inform advances in matters of national agendas, to get to a regional action related to the project on indigenous populations and atrocity crime prevention, as well as a presentation of the progress status of the AIPR project, “Education and Mass Atrocity Prevention,” held in Brazil and El Salvador. 

In addition, the current global and regional humanitarian situations require transformative space for developing proposals to face these new challenges. These Network meetings offer a laboratory for the development of such ideas, and provide the opportunity to: (i) develop creative ideas in the search for resources to promote the sustainability and continuity of training efforts; (ii) develop strategies to raise awareness with sources that support the atrocity prevention efforts in Latin America; and (iii) strengthen a unified message that reaches regional and multilateral spaces that work on these issues and challenges. 

Since its creation in 2012, LAN has been working to identify common criteria to integrate prevention elements into human rights agendas. The world as a whole and the region in particular are facing new challenges that should be interpreted as a call to strengthen the respective commitments with concrete actions. The Network’s recurring meetings represent a space to work towards this direction, and they provide an opportunity to further institute and implement emerging proposals and initiatives with a prevention focus in the context of the Network.
