The Warsaw students of the Master Programme in humanitarian action took part in the workshop “V4 Prevention” organized between 5th and 7th October 2015 by the Budapest Centre for the International Prevention of Genocide and Mass Atrocities in coordination with NOHA Warsaw

Recent events have once again set high on the agenda of governments and regional organizations, including the European Union, the issues of respect for and promotion of human rights, prevention of mass atrocity crimes as well as development and application of the Responsibility to Protect, as adopted at the UN World Summit in 2005.

In this regard, since the change of regime in 1989-1990, members of the Visegrad Group have been cooperating in several fields of common regional interest, further developing their collaboration within the EU.

The Warsaw students of the Master Programme in humanitarian action took part in the workshop “V4 Prevention” organized between 5th and 7th October 2015 by the Budapest Centre for the International Prevention of Genocide and Mass Atrocities in coordination with NOHA Warsaw.

The two first days of the workshop were committed to discussion on general conflict prevention issues, as well as legal and practical aspects of genocide and mass atrocities at the national and international level. On the third day the students participated in  the Country X Simulation, which provided them with a deeper understanding of the way a genocide crime is born.
