Preventing Genocide and Mass Atrocities: What more can be done? Feb. 24, 1:30–2:30 p.m., 385 Russell Senate Office Building, Washington, DC.
Twenty-five years ago this month, the U.S. Senate ratified the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of Genocide. Last month, the United States was significantly involved in efforts to prevent potential mass violence around the referendum in South Sudan. But how effective has that proven, and just how well is the U.S. government equipped to help prevent genocide and mass atrocities today? What new tools are available and effective in averting mass atrocities? What tools are lacking?
