To mark the 75th anniversary of the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide, we sat down with Naomi Kikoler, Director of the Simon-Skjodt Center for the Prevention of Genocide at the US Holocaust Memorial Museum. During this episode Naomi discusses the importance of monitoring and analyzing atrocity risks and how she and her Center work with decision-makers and states to build holistic atrocity prevention strategies and tools. She explains how lessons learned from the Holocaust inform her work and how to responsibly engage with survivor communities to honor their resilience. Naomi also shares her views on the enduring value of the commitments enshrined in the Genocide Convention when advocating on behalf of communities experiencing atrocities today.
