“The Nexus Fund recently hosted the 2nd Annual Global Convening to End Mass Atrocities. This June, practitioners from the atrocities prevention community assembled in Istanbul, Turkey, to address and reflect on the field’s most  pressing issues through a combination of small-group discussions, plenaries, and presentations. Tina Park & Patrick Quinton-Brown from the Canadian Centre for Responsibility to Protect participated at this convening to showcase the CCR2P & our work with the Inter-Parliamentary Union Assembly.”  (http://nexus-fund.org/annual-convening/)
