Advocate, Educate, Legislate: The Role of Parliamentarians in the Prevention of Mass Atrocities

On 13-14 April 2017, Ms. Savita Pawnday, Deputy Executive Director of the Global Centre for the Responsibility to Protect, participated in an event at The Hague Institute for Global Justice on “Global Parliamentarians: The role of the legislative branch in building national mechanisms for atrocity prevention.” The event was cohosted by The Stanley Foundation, The Auschwitz Institute for Peace and Reconciliation, The Hague Institute for Global Justice, and The Montreal Institute for Genocide and Human Rights Studies, together with the Global Centre.

The Global Centre presented on the role that parliamentarians around the world have played in upholding the Responsibility to Protect. The Policy Brief presented at the meeting, “Advocate, Educate, Legislate: The Role of Parliamentarians in the Prevention of Mass Atrocities,” examines past practice and provides recommendations for potential future parliamentary action.
