Motivated by a shared vision of a region that protects its own people from atrocities, the Asia Pacific Partnership for Atrocity Prevention is an alliance of organizations which aims to support the prevention of genocide, war crimes, ethnic cleansing and crimes against humanity, and their incitement, and the protection of vulnerable communities by promoting the work of each partner and fostering collaboration and cooperation between them.

By facilitating cooperation between like-minded organizations it aims to help support each member to achieve its atrocity prevention goals. The partnership aims to facilitate coherent and comprehensive action to prevent atrocities that mobilizes the capacities of local, regional and global actors.
