“Preventing genocide is a shared responsibility. States must uphold their obligations under international law to prevent abuses and protect their populations. […] Only by meeting these challenges can we match the resolve of the survivors and truly honour the memory of those who died in Rwanda 19 years ago.”
– UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon
The year 2014 marks the 66th anniversary of the Convention for the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide, one of the fondamental legal documents which has helped lay the groundwork for the United Nations mission to protect vulnerable populations from mass atrocities.
By donating to the Budapest Centre your contribution will help sustain and strengthen the Budapest Centre’s high-impact prevention work. It enables us to prepare risk assessment, to promote greater international cooperation on R2P; to train high-level diplomats and decision-makers, practitioners, NGOs, academic staffs, and military personnel to create and implement national and regional mass atrocity response strategies, and to carry out research projects designed to forward recommendations on prevention to national, regional and international organisations.
The impact that we have in preventing these crimes is not possible without your involvement.
