This two day conference (September 20-21) convenes legal, gender, and genocide experts from around the world to discuss the four recent and/or ongoing asserted genocides of the Uyghurs, Rohingya, Yazidis, and Tigrayans. Our panels of experts will examine State responses to genocide, challenges to justice for gendered crimes during conflict or genocide, and how the crime of genocide itself is gendered.
This event is organized by Alliance for Peacebuilding's Digital Peacebuilding Community of Practice. Creative Development Lab at Creative Associates International will present on its work on disinformation prevention and detection across West Africa, its findings from focus groups of practitioners, and its new approach to disinformation programming.
