November 2017

PCRC was a part of the ‘Global Community Forum: Truth, Justice & Remembrance’ in Berlin. Organized by Robert Bosch Stiftung foundation, the Global Community Forum brought together 120 peace actors from all over the world, as well as selected international guests that are dedicated to establishing truth, justice & remembrance in (post-) conflict societies. Through expert discussions and thematic and regional working groups we were able to share successes, failures, and best practices in responding to gross human rights violations and preventing atrocities. Also in November, PCRC was a part of 2017 Zagreb Youth Summit. We were happy to be part of this event, organized by our partner and fellow regional genocide prevention coalition member Youth Initiative for Human Rights. PCRC President Velma Saric spoke alongside Benjamin Abtan on the panel ‘Democracy and Conflict: Ensuring Non-recurrence’ tomorrow. The summit brought together over 200 young leaders from around the globe map to deepen their understanding of the current challenges that pose significant threats to the stability and advancement of democracy.
