A new report by APPAP's COVID-19 Working Group investigates the impact of COVID-19 on the prevention of atrocity crimes.

Analysing key findings from seven different case studies across East Asia, the report examines changes to the political stability and human security of peoples and States. Regional and country-specific recommendations are also offered on how best to protect vulnerable populations from atrocity crimes in the context of COVID-19.

Join members of the COVID-19 Working Group as they launch the report and cover some of the key findings, and discuss what this could mean for atrocity prevention within East Asia. 

The launch will take place via Zoom on Wednesday 23 June 2021. See the attached flyer (PDF, 137KB) for times and more details.
