Global Parliamentary Alliance Against Atrocity Crimes

MIGS launched of the Global Parliamentary Alliance Against Atrocity Crimes (GPAAAC) in May 2022.

With the support of the Konrad Adenauer Stiftung Canada, MIGS created 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 focuses 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.

Upcoming: Montreal International Security Summit

MIGS’s International Security Summit will bring together high-level policymakers and experts from North America and Europe for a strategic dialogue in Montreal. The two-day event will consist of panel discussions on critical questions generated by the war in Ukraine.

The Security Summit will address essential questions regarding the war in Ukraine: What lessons must be drawn from the war? What are the implications of the war for global stability in general and NATO in particular? How should Canada play a more central role in reinforcing global security? What role is China playing in the war? What can be done to bring perpetrators to justice?

Join MIGS for this unique high-level event.

This event is supported by the Konrad Adenauer Stiftung Canada and the Canadian Department of Defense. Our Institutional partners are the Macdonald-Laurier Institute, the European Council on Foreign Relations and the Canadian International Council (Montreal).
