On behalf of Kyle Matthews, Senior Deputy Director of the Montreal Institute for Genocide and Human Right Studies (MIGS), I am writing to inform you that our upcoming Professional Training Program for the Prevention of Mass Atrocities is now accepting applications. This year our program will take place in Montreal, Canada from June 1st to June 3rd, 2016.

We would greatly appreciate if you could share this information with anyone who you think might be interested in this professional development opportunity.

As in previous years, the event is tailored to mid- to senior-level professionals interested in human rights, international security, extremism, and the prevention and interdiction of mass atrocity crimes. The program will be divided into several thematic sessions presented by internationally-recognized experts. During the sessions case studies related to Syria and Iraq, confronting violent extremism, ISIS, Boko Haram, among many others will be discussed.

The complete list of speakers will be announced shortly, but I am delighted to inform you we have confirmed the participation of our distinguished Senior Fellow Roméo Dallaire.
