The Auschwitz Institute for the Prevention of Genocide and Mass Atrocities (AIPG) and the National Center for Civil and Human Rights (NCCHR) share a national and global concern that the increasingly hostile environment of exclusion and social fragmentation in the US is heightening the risk and occurrence of identity-based marginalization and violence. As history shows us, such threats to civil and human rights can, if unchecked, become part of an escalating process of destruction that may lead to mass atrocity. This course uses the lessons learned from the field of atrocity prevention to help build capacity in our law enforcement partners to detect relevant risk factors for civil and human rights abuses, identify appropriate response tools to promote and protect those rights, and recognize the best practices to foster resiliency in targeted communities.
