National mechanisms for atrocity prevention, new edition released by AIPR

7 May 2016

The Auschwitz Institute for Peace and Reconciliation launched the 2016 edition of its Booklet on National Mechanisms for the Prevention of Genocide and other Atrocity Crimes.

This year’s publication will highlight the progress of existing national mechanisms featured in the 2015 edition (i.e. DRC, Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, and the United States), introduce newly established mechanisms (i.e. South Sudan and Costa Rica), discuss common challenges as well as innovative solutions, and provide a concluding section that pulls together lessons learned for the atrocity crimes prevention community.
