Upcoming Events

Organized By : International Coalition of Sites of Conscience (ICSC)

Join the International Coalition of Sites of Conscience (ICSC) and the Global Action Against Mass Atrocity Crimes (GAAMAC) as they offer strategies for using grassroots women's narratives as catalysts for atrocity prevention through unique peacebuilding programs that include art healing techniques, memorialization initiatives and survivor-led human rights documentation processes.

Panelists will discuss their work in community-led transitional justice initiatives in Africa, Asia and Latin America to illuminate how peace processes can better address gendered components of conflict and prevent future atrocities. Partners will share survivor-centered techniques, strategies and grassroots methodologies from their work in post-conflict environments with the goal of better incorporating grassroots atrocity prevention methodologies into the praxis of other civil society organizations and international actors. This event will discuss the many effective
truth, justice and reconciliation efforts and parallel structures that are possible when grassroots, national and international platforms collaborate.

Organized By : Federal Department of Foreign Affairs of Switzerland

Hate speech, discrimination and incitement often precede the commission of mass atrocities. Amplified by technology and the COVID-19 pandemic, the rise of violence in Europe is a reminder that despite its history, the region is not immune.

Many prevention initiatives from European civil society and states address the root causes of manifestations of violence. Despite European countries facing similar challenges, there are, however, significant gaps in mutual awareness and interconnectedness across these prevention efforts.

Hosted by Working Group on Peace and Development (FriEnt), Swiss Federal Department of Foreign Affairs (FDFA) with the support of GAAMAC, this interactive online workshop will aim to bring together relevant stakeholders, including state and civil society actors engaged in prevention at local, national and European levels. How can we connect and collaborate better with one another? What can we learn from peacebuilding efforts elsewhere? Together we will identify the gaps and synergies that need to be addressed to strengthen Europe’s peacebuilding architecture and prevention agenda.


Kate Ferguson, Co-Executive Director, Head of Research and Policy at Protection Approaches

Tanja Florath, Policy officer at the German Federal Ministry for Family Affairs, Senior Citizens, Women and Youth

The session will be moderated by Mô Bleeker, Special Envoy for Dealing with the Past and Prevention of atrocities at the Swiss Federal Department Foreign Affairs (FDFA). 

27 April 2021, 16:00-17:30
