Organized By : Rights for Peace

Rights for Peace and Global Action Against Mass Atrocity Crimes (GAAMAC) are pleased to invite you to a panel discussion and launch of Rights for Peace’s new ‘Guide to Hate Violations in International Law’. While hate crimes are given specific treatment in the national laws of many States, the notion of hate-motivated abuse has not translated into international human rights or international criminal law in a systematic way. Far too often, the special hate intent integral to genocide is not identified and reported. The existing human rights framework is fragmented, too, with protected groups differing from one Convention to the next. As genocide is a process, it is important that the human rights and international criminal law systems are able to prevent and punish the violations that make up the ‘the continuum of violence’.

This event therefore aims to stimulate a discussion and advance the thinking around the implementation of international human rights standards and the prevention of identity-based violence with regards to hate crime in international law - including the challenges and opportunities that may lie ahead in furthering this objective.
