What we do
The Budapest Centre works to help bridge the gap between early warning and early action in the prevention of genocide and mass atrocities. The Centre produces concrete and practical recommendations to help ensure informed, timely and effective preventive action by the international community. The Centre promotes the operation of an integrated early warning and early action-system and the necessary political consensus for timely and efficient action at international, regional and national levels.
Preventing is a collective and individual responsibility
“Preventing genocide is a collective and individual responsibility. Everyone has a role to play: Governments, the media, civil society organizations, religious groups, and each and every one of us. Let us build a global partnership against genocide. Let us protect populations from genocide when their own Government cannot or will not”
(UN Secretary General Ban Ki Moon, on the anniversary of the Rwanda genocide)
