The panel will feature representatives from the Permanent Mission of Paraguay to the United Nations, the United Nations Office of the Special Adviser on the Prevention of Genocide, and the Auschwitz Institute and will be moderated by Owen Pell, a Partner at White and Case LLP and member of the Auschwitz Institute's Board of Directors.
The theme of the evening's conversation will center on National Mechanisms - state bodies that include representatives from different areas of government relevant to the prevention of mass atrocities. Participants will consider the character and configuration of their mandates, compositions, and activities. The discussion panel will also consider the tools and apparatuses utilized by National Mechanisms in the inception, refinement, and implementation of a unified national policy for prevention.
