25 April 2012

Taking place on 25 April in Brussels, 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 and included representatives of the EEAS, the European Commission and individual EU Member States, as well as experts from NGOs, think tanks and academia in Brussels. 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.
