AHDA Launches Genocide Prevention Project

Supported by the Charles E. Scheidt Family Foundation.
Wednesday, February 15, 2017

The Alliance for Historical Dialogue and Accountability (AHDA) is proud to launch the Using History in Genocide Prevention project. This project has been made possible through a generous grant from the Charles E. Scheidt Family Foundation.

History and the examination of root causes of conflict are a critical long-term line of defense against genocide and other identity based crimes of atrocities. The goal of this project is to enable practitioners and students of genocide prevention to develop projects that engage the past as a means to preventing genocide. Such projects enable practitioners to re-examine the history and root causes of mass violence in their societies, to bridge the conflicting memories of this violence, and to begin the work of de-escalating tensions that often lead to renewed violence and potential future genocide.
