BINGHAMTON, NY – The Institute for Genocide and Mass Atrocity Prevention at Binghamton University will hold its inaugural conference, “Frontiers of Prevention” on April 13-14, on the second floor of the University Downtown Center, 67 Washington St., Binghamton. The event is free and open to the public.
The Institute's inaugural conference has two linked objectives. The first is a critical assessment of the contemporary state of a spectrum of genocide and atrocity prevention mechanisms, and an exploration of emergent mechanisms and actors in the global effort at atrocity prevention. The second is to organize an open forum where leading academic researchers with research programs dedicated to prevention can meet with practitioners, both in government and non-governmental service, as a way to foster critical exchange and find new grounds for knowledge exchange and collaboration.
Conference participants include scholars and prevention-focused activists and practitioners from organizations around the world. Panel themes include: assessing the Responsibility to Protect, new developments in data analysis and risk assessment, emergent prevention mechanisms and actors, and new frontiers in educational policies and commemorative practices.
While no registration is required, for planning purposes those planning to attend are kindly requested to contact Kathy Michaels, institute administrator, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
