Educational modules will familiarize participants with the concepts of genocide and mass atrocity prevention and the Responsibility to Protect, among other topics. It will be composed of two separate trainings: one for professionals coming from civil society, academia, and government, and the other for university students from both within and outside Sarajevo. In addition to working to create genocide sensitive citizenry, one of the chief goals of this initiative is to develop a genocide and mass atrocity curriculum for institutions of higher education in Bosnia and Herzegovina, thus establishing a long-term mechanism to counter the threat of mass atrocities through preventive awareness and action.
