The 5th International Meeting of GariwoNetwork was held on Tuesday 23 November 2021 live on YouTube and focused on the topic of genocide prevention with interventions by experts. The current situation in the world, in which different scenarios of potential genocides and mass atrocities emerge, makes a global debate on how to recognize dangerous mechanisms and languages and prevent new genocides increasingly urgent.

Cataluccio, the Polish journalist and activist Konstanty Gebert, the President of the Foreign Affairs Commission of the Chamber of the Deputies Piero Fassino.
