Despite international commitments & progress to prioritize atrocity prevention, atrocities have continued. This is in part because the vision of atrocity prevention has yet to match the prioritization and resourcing to achieve it. Too often, the focus on preventing atrocities comes too late. Atrocities have already begun. Search for Common Ground recently published the report “Polarization, Social Cohesion, and Atrocities: Approaches for a Safer World” based on key lessons from ten years in atrocity prevention across ten countries.
For this Thursday Talk, ConnexUs was joined by Katie Smith, Global Policy Specialist at Search for Common Ground, as our main speaker & Kim Brody Hart, Senior Human Rights Advisor at USAID, as our expert listener.
