The Working Group on Gender and Atrocity Prevention is convened by Ateneo de Manila University and the Asia Pacific Centre for the Responsibility to Protect.

It aims to highlight the gendered aspects of atrocity crime and entrench gender-aware approaches in atrocity prevention work. Following its second general meeting in Timor Leste in February 2019, it hosted a Roundtable Discussion with stakeholders and a Peer-to-Peer learning activity. Alongside the APPAP general meeting in August 2019, the working group ran a pilot of the Human Rights Defenders’ Training on Preventing Sexual and Gender-based Atrocity Crimes (SGBAC), for human rights defenders from Bangladesh, Cambodia, Indonesia, Malaysia and Myanmar.
