Prepared by the Technical Secretariat of the Latin American Network (the Auschwitz Institute for Peace and Reconciliation)
 
The Latin American Network began its work in 2012, led by the governments of Argentina and Brazil, and now comprises representatives from 17 states in the region. Some of the network’s aims are to build regional and national foundations necessary for the prevention of genocide and mass atrocities, and to empower Latin American states to become leaders in prevention on the international scene.

Among the network’s accomplishments in 2016 were:
  • Completion of the pilot phase of the Raphael Lemkin Seminar.
  • Work on joint initiatives on education, as well as support and dissemination of policies on memory, truth, and justice.
