As part of a joint initiative by the Auschwitz Institute for Peace and Reconciliation (AIPR) and the International School of Public Policy on Human Rights at the MERCOSUR Institute of Public Policies on Human Rights (IPPDH), a new tool for communication and interaction between alumni of the Raphael Lemkin Seminar for the Latin American Network for Genocide and Mass Atrocity Prevention has been launched.
The Latin American Network-IPPDH-AIPR Meeting Space is a virtual tool designed to function as a mechanism that supports training initiatives, the construction of public policy in human rights, and the prevention of atrocities in Latin America.
The proposal to create a virtual space emerged from both the Network itself and an initiative to establish an institutional link between IPPDH and AIPR that would better channel collaborative efforts and explore new areas of cooperation and joint work. With the support of the Focal Points of the Latin American Network, this new digital initiative will foster an improved flow of communication, materials, and information on human rights and genocide prevention among public officials in the region while simultaneously strengthening the processes that are being developed in Latin America.
AIPR is pleased to participate in this project and hopes the Meeting Space will constitute a new source of input that contributes to the further consolidation of the Latin American Network for Genocide and Mass Atrocity Prevention, a trend present since the Network’s inception in 2012.
