The desire to protect people from genocide, war crimes, crimes against humanity and ethnic cleansing is a global issue. But once the point of acute violence has been reached, options to respond become limited. During this event, Adama Dieng (UN Special Adviser for the Prevention of Genocide), Matthew Rycroft CBE (Permanent Secretary at UK Department for International Development) and Dr Kate Ferguson (Director of Research and Policy at Protection Approaches) will discuss what can be done before mass atrocities are carried out so that governments can focus on prevention rather than response.

“A memorial unresponsive to the future would violate the memory of the past,” wrote Museum Founding Chairman Elie Wiesel. Since its creation 25 years ago, the Museum has sought to be a voice for the victims of genocide today that the Jews of Europe did not have in the 1930s and ’40s. Join us to learn more about this critical aspect of the Museum’s mission and its recent work to bring attention to the plight of victims fleeing atrocities committed by ISIS in northern Iraq and the Assad regime in Syria.
