Importance of Accountability: Genocide Prevention and Justice for Victims

Darfur Women Action Group will be hosting an online panel discussion event on Wednesday, December 9th on the Importance of Accountability for Genocide Prevention and Justice for Victims (1.00-3.00 pm EST).


To mark International Day of Commemoration and Dignity of the Victims of the Crime of Genocide and conclude our 16 Days of Activism campaign, Darfur Women Action Group will be hosting an online event with two-panel discussions on December 9th from 1:00-3:00 pm EST. The first panel will focus on accountability as a genocide prevention mechanism and feature the following notable speakers: Ambassador Stephen Rapp (former U.S. Ambassador-at-Large for War Crimes Issues), Ms. Mona Ali Khalil (former UN Senior Legal Officer and founder of MAK LAW), and additional speakers to be confirmed soon. The discussion will address effective accountability mechanisms and the present failure of the international community to hold perpetrators responsible, taking Sudan as an example. The second panel will focus on strategies for genocide prevention and feature the following distinguished speakers: Dr. Gregory Stanton (Founder and President of Genocide Watch), Ms. Niemat Ahmadi (Founder and President of DWAG), and additional speakers to be confirmed soon. The panel will delve into the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on genocide prevention and women empowerment efforts around the world.


Both panels will conclude with each speaker contributing a set of strategic recommendations and answering questions from our audience. The panel discussion will be held via Google Meet and shared on Facebook after the event.


A recording of the event is available on the Facebook page.
