By Kyle Matthews and Marie Lamensch


The Montreal Institute for Genocide and Human Rights Studies (MIGS) is pleased to announce the launch of the Global Parliamentary Alliance Against Atrocity Crimes (GPAAAC).

With the support of the Konrad Adenauer Stiftung Canada, MIGS will create a network of Canadian, German and EU-member state parliamentarians, to explore how parliamentarians can better prevent and respond to mass atrocity crimes, while defending and strengthening democracy and the liberal order.

The project will focus on Ukraine and the key international challenges the crisis there poses to human rights, democracy, and the rule of law.  

Utilizing MIGS wide network of parliamentarians, this project will provide a model for best practices for preventing and responding to future atrocity crimes. In the past MIGS has worked with parliamentarians through the All-Party Parliamentary Group for the Prevention of Genocide and with Parliamentarians for Global Action.

To mark the start of this project, MIGS is hosting a Twitter Spaces with Senator Marilou McPhedran today (May 2) at 2 PM EST. To listen, please click on this link.
