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.
