ATROCITY CRIMES PREVENTION THROUGH EDUCATION PROGRAMME

ATROCITY CRIMES PREVENTION THROUGH EDUCATION PROGRAMME with the United Nations' Office of the Special Adviser on the Prevention of Genocide (OSAPG)

OVERVIEW
The Documentation Center of Cambodia (DC-Cam) is pleased to announce the establishment of its Atrocity Crimes Prevention through Education Programme, which provides atrocity crimes education to the South and Southeast Asian regions.

RATIONALE
— Education on atrocity crimes in history and the risk factors associated with their re-occurrence is an important tool for the prevention of atrocity crimes today.

— Although education in atrocity prevention has been emphasized repeatedly, its implementation remains limited, especially in South and Southeast Asia regions.

— In this context, the Documentation Center of Cambodia has developed a teachers’ guidebook, The Atrocity Crimes Prevention through Education: Southeast Asian Region Teachers’ Guidebook, which offers lesson plans, strategies, activities, and materials for teachers to use in their classrooms. The guidebook is supplemented by a DC-Cam workshop programme that provides advanced professional training and development in the instruction of atrocity crimes education.
