GAAMAC Partners

The “Global Action Against Mass Atrocity Crimes” (GAAMAC) is an open, inclusive, state-led network created in 2013 by states and nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) that jointly engage in atrocity prevention.  

GAAMAC partners are those organizations and states that have expressed interest in supporting "the mission, function, operational modality and principles of partnership of GAAMAC" as articulated in the Founding Document.


The Liberation War Museum (LWM), established in 1996 in Dhaka, Bangladesh, commemorates the heroic struggle of the Bengali nation for their democratic and national rights. The struggle turned into an armed conflict following the genocide unleashed by the military rulers of Islamic Republic of Pakistan and culminated with the emergence of Bangladesh as a secular, democratic state in December 1971. The acts of memorialization made LWM an active partner of national effort to establish justice for international crimes and link that with global efforts.
The Montreal Institute for Genocide and Human Rights Studies (MIGS) is Canada’s leading research and advocacy institute for genocide and mass atrocity crimes prevention. Our organization conducts in-depth research and proposes concrete policy recommendations to resolve conflicts before they degenerate into mass atrocity crimes. MIGS has achieved national and international recognition for its role as an idea and leadership incubator working with policymakers, academics, leading research institutions, and the media.
