Annual Conference: Frontiers of Prevention II

April 5-6, 2019
Binghamton, N.Y. USA



The Institute for Genocide and Mass Atrocity Prevention at Binghamton University is pleased to announce its 2019 annual conference. Frontiers of Prevention II will take place at Binghamton University's Downtown Campus with events beginning on the morning of Friday April 5, and concluding on the evening of Saturday April 6.

Frontiers of Prevention II has two linked objectives. The first is a critical assessment of the status of existing genocide and atrocity prevention mechanisms, and an exploration of emergent mechanisms and actors in the global effort at atrocity prevention. The second is to organize an open forum where leading academic researchers with research programs dedicated to prevention can meet with practitioners, both in government and non-governmental service, fostering critical exchange and finding new grounds for knowledge exchange and collaboration.

Academic researchers are invited to submit proposals on current research projects with a clear connection to atrocity prevention efforts. Prevention practitioners in government or non-governmental service are invited to submit proposals describing their agency's work, its challenges and opportunities for improvement and (where possible) how the academic community might contribute to it.

To submit online proposals, please click on the "Submit Proposals and Registrations Here" button on the right side of this website and fill the google form that will be open from the link. Once you complete the form, click on submit.

Deadline for Submission of Proposals is January 10, 2019.

Financial support is available for presenters traveling from the Global South. If you would like to be considered for travel support, please indicate in the form provided when submitting your proposal.
