17:00 - 19:00pm

AIPR has developed a Training Resource Manual for Genocide and Mass Atrocity Prevention in the Great Lakes Region of Africa designed to provide guidance and insight into the nature and practice of prevention to all relevant actors in the field. This Manual was created following a baseline analysis conducted by the AIPR Africa Programs staff assessing the existing capacity in the Great Lakes Region to prevent genocide and other mass atrocities. The information gathered in this assessment directly informed the design of the Manual to ensure that it responds to the areas of greatest need as identified by those working in the field of prevention.
 
This Training Resource Manual provides a diverse range of resources that span from the roles of the state and civil society in prevention, to instruments of early warning and transitional justice, to thematic areas such as the prevention of electoral and resource scarcity related violence.
The event will feature opening remarks by AIPR's Africa Programs New York Liaison Jack Mayerhofer, followed by Owen Pell of White & Case, AIPR's Academic Programs Director Dr. James Waller, and the Africa Programs Director at AIPR, Dr. Ashad Sentongo.

The visual and spoken testimony of activists and journalists has the power to enrich our understanding of other countries, cultures, and peoples. It also documents groups at risk when there is still time for the world to act. With its mandate to alert the national conscience to genocide and crimes against humanity, the Museum relies on the evidence these professionals collect to bring to light stories of destruction and devastation. Join us for a discussion with those who put themselves in harm’s way to bear witness to mass atrocities.

This event will take place at University of Miami Hillel at 19:00 on the 10th of February, 2016.
