Between May 27th and June 1st 2013, the Institute for Cultural Diplomacy in Berlin held a Symposium on Cultural Diplomacy and Human Rights “Towards a Global Human Rights Culture: The Need for a Collective Alliance in the Protection & Promotion of Human Rights”.

The conference provided the platform for activists, experts, academics and world leaders involved in the field of Human Rights to come together, create alliances, and better coordinate their activities, thus promoting better implementation and enforcement of Human Rights in a more effective nature.

One of the speakers at the Symposium was Edson Chiota, CEO of Zimbabwe Association for Crime Prevention and Rehabilitation of the Offender. Mr. Chiota  gave a Lecture on the topic of “Collaboration of Civil Society in Preventing Genocide and Mass Atrocities – Perspectives from  Zimbabwe “

“Without the active involvememaxresdefaultnt of civil society we would live in a world with much more violence, greater social injustice and with the less sensitivity to the ecological problems we are facing”
