The All Party Parliamentary Group for the Prevention of Genocide and Crimes Against Humanity is a cross-party group that aims to ensure that the UK does all it can to prevent genocide. Its focus is on cross-cutting issues and specific events rather than having a geographic or thematic focus such as the responsibility to protect (R2P).
Co-Chairs: Fleur Anderson MP (Labour) and Mohammad Lord Sheikh (Conservative).
The APPG for Prevention of Genocide’s objectives are to:
- Ensure that the United Kingdom does all it can to prevent genocides and crimes against humanity;
- Increase the flow of independent information and analysis to British Parliamentarians about genocides and crimes against humanity;
- Support Parliamentarians so as to increase the effectiveness of their scrutiny of government, and;
- Promote understanding of the importance of long term approaches to genocide prevention.
Secretariat: The Aegis Trust acts as the secretariat for the APPG on the Prevention of Genocide. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org
