High-Level Conference on the HRC Investigative Mechanisms and Preventing Mass Atrocities

5 Nov 2018 | Geneva, Switzerland

Since 2006, the Human Rights Council has developed innovative investigative mechanisms to respond to many of the gravest conflicts occurring today, and to promote accountability for violations of international law. Yet the situations in these countries continue to deteriorate, and justice for victims of atrocities remains negligible.

This conference will provide an opportunity for States, non-governmental and civil-society organisations and practitioners to reflect upon the influence of investigative human rights mechanisms concerning atrocity prevention and accountability, discuss best practices, and explore how to improve their efficiency.
