Civic dialogues are closed-door discussions with politicians from every level of government, business people, academics, NGO directors, journalists, religious leaders and public intellectuals. W2I engages them in locating the intersection between the national interest and preventing mass atrocities. Participants in the civic dialogues assess our strategic recommendations and brainstorm on how W2I's recommendations can be integrated into federal government policies. The aim of the civic dialogues, as opposed to public lectures, is to inform and galvinize a small group of interested, influential people in key North American cities who can help us to introduce resolutions at municipal councils, provincial and state legislatures, the Parliament of Canada and the Congress of the U.S. calling on the Canadian and American governments to implement W2I's recommendations. Having accomplished pilot civic dialogues in Calgary, Edmonton and Vancouver, MIGS is ready to expand its awareness raising activities across key North American cities.
