Expert Voices on Atrocity Prevention is a podcast by the Global Centre for the Responsibility to Protect. The podcast, hosted by Global Centre Research Director Jaclyn Streitfeld-Hall, features one-on-one conversations with practitioners from the field of human rights, conflict prevention, atrocity prevention and other related agendas. These conversations aim to provide a glimpse of the personal and professional side of how practitioners approach human rights protection and atrocity prevention. The podcast is available on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, SoundCloud and YouTube. Please subscribe for new episodes.
In this special episode, we sat down with our outgoing Executive Director, Dr. Simon Adams. The discussion begins with reflections from Dr. Adams on how his life experiences have uniquely led him to a career in human rights. We also explore the highs and lows of working on atrocity prevention over the last decade, including how intractable conflicts like Syria have shaped how we address emerging crises.
We’d like to thank Dr. Adams for his unwavering leadership and immeasurable contributions over the last ten years at the Global Centre and wish him the greatest success in his new position.
