Recent world events have highlighted the threat posed by violent nonstate actors that perpetrate mass atrocity crimes, including genocide, crimes against humanity, ethnic cleansing, and war crimes. To examine the challenges facing the international community from these new threats, a roundtable workshop of experts and policymakers was convened at the Airlie Center outside Washington, DC, as part of the Stanley Foundation’s 56th annual Strategy for Peace Conference held October 14-16, 2015.

This policy memo captures the major discussion points and policy recommendations from the roundtable on “Nonstate Actors as Perpetrators and Enablers of Mass Atrocity Violence,” chaired by Ambassador Stephen J. Rapp, former international prosecutor and US ambassador for War Crimes Issues, Office of Global Criminal Justice, US Department of State.
