Conflict-Related Atrocity Crimes Prevention is a unique online course developed for ministries of defense and security forces. Conflict-related atrocity crimes, including the perpetration of war crimes, continue to be a global challenge. While international humanitarian law regulates the conduct of war or armed conflict and is the subject of much traditional compliance training in this sector, this new curriculum aims to complement that training by effectively institutionalizing the prevention of conflict-related atrocity crimes across all phases of the conflict cycle. The first week of the course provides an overview of the concepts of genocide, mass atrocities, armed conflict, and prevention. The remaining four weeks of the course are structured around legal frameworks for atrocity crimes prevention, atrocity crimes risk analysis, understanding the psychological processes by which ordinary people commit atrocity crimes, and an applied analysis of prevention strategies for conflict-related sexual and gender-based violence (CR-SGBV).
