GDL Incubator: 18 to 21 June 2017, Buenos Aires
The overarching goal of the 6th Global Diplomacy Lab was to examine regional networks for atrocity prevention as innovative and inclusive diplomatic solutions to a global problem which is driven and informed by local demand. The 6th Lab answered this challenge by highlighting specifically the Latin American Network for Genocide and Mass Atrocity Prevention and the African Network for Genocide and Mass Atrocity Prevention as tools for atrocity prevention.
The lab did not, however, focus exclusively on the networks themselves, but demonstrated how they act as instruments for prevention, all the while making clear the need to expand this process to the global level.
The objective of the lab was to provide examples of existing networks and their contributions to national agendas, to push forward the growth of new networks and cross-regional coordination, as well as to offer South-South cooperation between Latin America and Africa.
