Taking place on 21 September in Paris, the Round Table aimed to take stock of the EU’s current capabilities and practices in the domain of mass atrocity prevention and to discuss options for improving the warning-response linkage.

Participants in the Round Table shared their views and opinions whilst observing the Chatham House Rule. The meeting was attended by representatives of the EEAS and individual EU Member States, as well as experts from NGOs, think tanks and academia. The presentations and subsequent discussions focused on the successes and failures of efforts to prevent mass atrocities, identifying the strengths and gaps in EU actions and capacities in order to generate ideas and suggestions for improvement.

The roundtable was hosted in the premises of the Memorial de la Shoah.
