Details

The establishment of the Office of the Special Adviser on the Prevention of Genocide (OSAPG) in 2004 constituted the clearest response to date to calls for UN reform made since the 1994 Rwandan genocide. While the establishment of the OSAPG was widely regarded as a profoundly significant development it had not been the focus of in-depth academic research. This project addressed this gap by undertaking extensive qualitative research into the record of the OSAPG, its methodology and its relationship to the broader UN framework. Findings were disseminated in the form of a number of journal articles, book chapters and conference presentations.
