Organized By : Budapest Centre for the International Prevention of Genocide and Mass Atrocities

Following up of the discussion on the security risks of climate change and digital transformation through the lens of mass atrocities and protection of civilians and the preparation of convening a Multipolar Task Force in that context, the Budapest Centre for Mass Atrocities Prevention (BCMAP) and the Environment & Development Resource Centre invite you to the next meeting of scholars and practitioners.

The discussion will focus on the presentation of diverging tools and approaches of some global actors towards responding to the security risks of climate change and digital transformation which impede protection of civilians from mass atrocities and which require a new coherent and consistent harmonized framework.

The proposed Multipolar Task Force will aim to generate political will and enhancing of cooperation among the UN Security Council Permanent Member States (P5) which in particular have both the responsibility and the opportunity within the international community to better address the contemporary challenges, protecting civilians from mass killing and uniting rather than dividing diverse cultures and communities. The goal is to discover actionable responses while utilizing the perspectives of different cultures and the younger generation, who will be most impacted by the challenges that lie ahead.

“Diverging Approaches to Human Rights in Diplomacy” - Dr. Istvan Lakatos, Former Human Rights Ambassador of Hungary /Senior Adviser in the Ministry of Human and Minority Rights of Montenegro

“Diverging Responses to the Challenges of Artificial Intelligence” - Kyle Matthews, Executive Director, Montreal Institute for Genocide & Human Rights Studies

Driven by its mission to narrow the gap between early warning and early action, the Budapest Centre for Mass Atrocities Prevention (BCMAP), in cooperation with the Environment & Development Resource Centre , plans to convene a Multipolar Task Force (MTF) that will explore the risks of mass atrocities in the context of a wider range of geopolitical issues and potential threats to security in the future.
How will climate change and the digital revolution including artificial intelligence impact security challenges? What will these threat multipliers mean for civilian protection? How will they increase risks of mass
atrocities? How can international actors respond to these threats in the course of the ongoing geopolitical changes?
The proposed Multipolar Task Force will aim to generate political will and enhancing of cooperation among the UN Security Council Permanent Member States (P5) which in particular have both the responsibility and the opportunity within the international community to better address the
contemporary challenges, protecting civilians from mass killing and uniting rather than dividing diverse cultures and communities. The goal is to discover actionable responses while utilizing the perspectives of different cultures and the younger generation, who will be most impacted by the challenges that lie ahead.
