Latin American Focal Points Dialogue

November 11, 2013

Buenos Aires, Argentina

The purpose of the dialogue is to engage the Latin American Network for Genocide and Mass Atrocity Prevention (the Network or LAN) in a discussion of its current status and future goals with respect to mass atrocity prevention in the region. The dialogue will engage 18 countries that have already appointed mass atrocity prevention focal points to explore how countries can develop national policies to mitigate incidences and opportunities for genocide.  

The Stanley Foundation will include the chair of the Tanzania National Committee for the Prevention of Genocide and Mass Atrocities as a participant in the meeting as a way of opening a dialogue with African states currently in the process of developing a similar African network. There is additional value in experiences being shared from outside the region with the goal of the Latin American states drawing on the best practices, lessons learned, and challenges that Tanzania has faced as they created their national committee.

The objectives of the dialogue are as follows: 

  1. To strengthen cooperation among members of the Network.
  2. To review individual nation progress on mass atrocity prevention program development.
  3. To discuss future lines of action for the institutional implementation of mass atrocity prevention programs among the members of the Network.
  4. To encourage South-South cooperation in mass atrocity prevention by including the Tanzania National Committee focal point to provide lessons from the African context.
