Prevention of Genocide and Mass Atrocities
Report - 12 - 13 May 2011

The Madariaga – College of Europe Foundation (MCF) and the Folke Bernadotte Academy (FBA) organised a workshop entitled “Prevention of Genocide and Mass Atrocities” on the 12-13 May, 2011. The event is part of the programme “Building coherence, skills and synergies in conflict prevention”, organised jointly by MCF and FBA to reinforce cooperation and to evolve a closer interaction between representatives of the international community towards more concrete dialogue on conflict prevention.

Organised with the support of the Hungarian Presidency of the European Union, and in close cooperation with the European External Action Service and the European Peacebuilding Liaison Office (EPLO), the workshop provided an excellent opportunity for participants to reflect on the questions and challenges of preventing genocide and mass atrocities. It gathered representatives of international organisations, European institutions, NGOs and experts in the field to provide a fruitful debate on this topic.

The workshop was held on Thursday, 12 May 2011 at the premises of the Hungarian Permanent Representation to the EU. As a follow-up on Friday, 13 May 2011, there was a Dialogue Forum. Officials from relevant organisations and representatives from EU member states were invited to formulate concrete recommendations on how to better prevent genocide and mass atrocities.


Is the Enlargement Success Story Resisting the Crisis?
Madariaga Report - 10 May 2011

How far has the enlargement process - initially described as a success story - proved robust in critical times? Despite years of convergence between Western Europe and the new Member States, economic heterogeneity and diverging political preferences seem to dominate the new Member States’ response to the crisis. With what results, for them and for the EU?
