LibraryIntro

With the launch of the E-Youth Library for Mass Atrocities Prevention, the Budapest Centre wishes to offer a collection of news relevant to the subject of Responsibility to Protect.

It includes a wide variety of official documents, research and articles written by various academics, as well as reports prepared by partner organizations on situations at risk.

The library also intends to provide an insight into the activities of organizations working in the field of mass atrocities prevention.

The collection, established by interns of the Budapest Centre, is designed to familiarize young people with some key policies, activities and reflections aimed at addressing the challenges of the four mass atrocity crimes, as well as provide a comprehensive overview of such concepts and the debates surrounding them.

The E-Youth Library is a product by the youth for the youth, which will be systematically updated by the interns of the Budapest Centre in the belief that they best understand the interests and demands of the younger generation, their age-group.

The management of the Budapest Centre hopes that the E-Youth Library for MAP will enrich the knowledge and expertise of the young generation dedicated to the prevention of extreme human rights violations and engage further young people in preventing mass atrocities.
