Despite substantial progress in elevating atrocity prevention as a global goal, civilian populations in far too many places across the world are still suffering from egregious crimes. To protect populations from the risk of mass atrocities, local peacebuilders have long engaged in efforts to bridge divisions in their communities and find local solutions to conflict.

To explore this further, Peace Direct held a collaborative online consultation for experts and practitioners interested in this area to discuss the nexus between atrocity prevention and peacebuilding, which took place in November and December 2017. The 4-day online consultation on the issue of atrocity prevention brought together 96 participants and experts to share their insight and experiences.

Following the consultation, this report presents the analysis and recommendations of atrocity prevention and peacebuilding from experts and practitioners from across the globe, and advocates for the recognition of the critical role that local civil society and locally-led peacebuilding approaches play in preventing and stopping atrocities.

The Full Report, as well as an Executive Summary with a summary of key findings and recommendations from the consultation are available below.

There has been a rise in violence in Kashmir, amid claims of a growing culture of martyrdom that is beginning to form the new driving narrative for militancy and violence. This glorification of martyrdom as seen in Kashmir has its roots in growing violent extremism, the recruitment of young men to violence, and militarisation.
