Budapest Centre for Mass Atrocities Prevention (BCMAP), in collaboration with the Institute for Foreign Affairs and Trade (Hungary), NOHA – University of Warsaw (Poland), the Slovak Foreign Policy Association (Slovakia), expert from the Czech Republic, and supported by the International Visegrad Fund continues its efforts to improve the capabilities and interactions of the Visegrad Group to prevent mass atrocities, counter extremism and radicalization, and address the impact of on-going migratory flows on societal and political stability by launching a 10-month Initiative under the title “V4 Task Force on Prevention of Mass Atrocities”. NOHA Warsaw is represented in the “V4 Task Force” by Dr. Agnieszka Bieńczyk-Missala
In the course of the Initiative the “V4 Task Force” intends to map the State of the Art of preventive capacities in the Visegrad Countries in implementing the principle of the Responsibility to Protect with a focus on the opportunities for cooperation and the challenges faced when countering anti-Semitism, anti-Roma feelings, hatred, extremism, and radicalization. The Initiative follows the successful experience obtained by the Budapest Centre during the activities of the 2013 EU Task Force on Mass Atrocities Prevention and the 2016 African Task Force on Mass Atrocities Prevention.
On the 22nd September Budapest Centre for Mass Atrocities Prevention organizes roundtable discussion, entitled “Cooperation of the Visegrad Group in the domain of RtoP” to mark the launch of the initiative. You can find more information about the event and the initiative here.
