Many atrocities take place against a backdrop of armed conflict. While atrocity prevention and conflict prevention are different, the latter can contribute to the former. On 6 March, the World Bank Group and the United Nations will present their joint study “Pathways for Peace: Inclusive Approaches to Preventing Violent Conflict”. The joint study offers national and international actors an agenda for action on how conflict can be prevented from turning violent.

The conference aims to inform the German civil society and European public about the on-going genocide of Rohingya people in Myanmar/Burma. It is hoped that the conference will be able to help influence public opinion, which in turn will demand that the EU leaders take their shared political and human responsibility to make the call: “Never again!” a reality.

The event will introduce the overall ‘Implementation Agenda’ to national human rights institutions (NHRIs) representatives, underscore the crucial role of NHRIs, and showcase different good practice examples of how NHRIs are currently engaging, and/or are planning to engage, with domestic implementation processes.
The side event will thereby allow for an initial collation of good practice examples, identify common threads, and disseminate and propagate those good practices and principles among NHRIs. This aims to support their unique role in helping turn universal norms into local realities for people on the ground.
