Prevention Talks

Welcome to GAAMAC's "Prevention Talks", a series of conversations on atrocity prevention with experts from around the world sharing their knowledge and experience. The series is hosted by Mô Bleeker, GAAMAC Chair.

In the context of the COVID-19 crisis, this first chapter is dedicated to exploring the parallels between public health and atrocity prevention.
