How To Stop the Killing – AGBU Europe

  |   Paris   |   Event Details

69 years ago, the United Nations adopted the Convention for the Prevention and Repression of the Crime of Genocide. In the wake of World War II, this Convention was part of a wave of human rights legislation that aimed to place limits on the privileges of sovereignty and to protect populations from abusive governments, including from their own.

In spite of the provisions of international law however, the first two decades of the 21st Century continue to witness more mass victimization. In 2017, the situation remains critical in a number of countries, including Burundi, Myanmar, Iraq and Syria as well as in the Central African Republic.

The conference will aim to review the lessons policy-makers have learnt from the experience of the past decades. It will examine new ways in which some governments and international organizations anticipate and attempt to prevent massacres and ethnic cleansing.

The conference is organized by the Elie Wiesel Network/EGAM, AGBU Europe and Nouvelles d’Arménie on the occasion of the anniversary of the adoption of the 1948 Convention for the Prevention and the Repression of the Crime of Genocide.

Start: Dec 09 2:00 pm End: Dec 09 6:00 pm Venue: PSB - Paris School of Business Address:
