Cooperation of the Visegrad Group in Preventing Mass Atrocities
6 November 2013 at Central European University, Popper Room
This Roundtable, a pre-event of the VI. Budapest Human Rights Forum, will provide a framework for governmental officials responsible for human rights and the Responsibility to Protect, and researchers and non-governmental organizations dedicated to the cause of mass atrocities prevention to discuss the contribution of the Visegrad Group to the on-going international efforts and identify the possibilities of building up relevant national and regional capabilities. The geographical and temporal proximity of genocide in Srebrenica is a particular challenge for the Visegrad Group that should better facilitate the reconciliation and peace process in Bosnia and Herzegovina. The roundtable is organised by the Budapest Centre for the International Prevention of Genocide and Mass Atrocities in cooperation with Universities and other Institutions focusing on Genocide Prevention. Enzo Maria Le Fevre Cervini, ECIA Fellow and Director of Research and Cooperation, Budapest Centre for the International Prevention of Genocide and Mass Atrocities, will moderate the first panel and will draw the conclusions.
