If You Find Yourself in Boston…

If You Find Yourself in Boston...

We’ve gotten wind of another event related to the Genocide Prevention Task Force, which will be taking place tomorrow evening at the Boston Public Library. A panel of experts will discuss the group’s detailed set of recommendations, titled Preventing Genocide: A Blueprint for U.S. Policymakers, which was published at the end of last year. The task force, co-chaired by Madeleine Albright and William Cohen, was a joint initiative of the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, the United States Institute of Peace, and the American Academy of Diplomacy. The task force’s findings highlight how genocide and mass atrocities threaten core American values and interests, and offer recommendations for how the U.S. government can help prevent these crimes worldwide.

Tomorrow night’s program will begin at 7p.m. and will feature:

Ambassador Swanee Hunt
Hunt Alternatives Fund

Meghan O’Sullivan
Lecturer in Public Policy
Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs
Harvard Kennedy School of Government

John Heffernan
Director, Genocide Prevention Initiative
United States Holocaust Memorial Museum

Lawrence Woocher
Senior Program Officer
Center for Conflict Analysis and Prevention
