The Global Parliamentary Alliance Against Atrocity Crimes

What is GPAAAC?

The Global Parliamentary Alliance Against Atrocity Crimes (GPAAAC) is an international network of parliamentarians and experts working to ensure democracies act more forcefully in preventing and responding to mass atrocity crimes. Parliamentarians are often underutilized in efforts to counter mass atrocity crimes.


GPAAAC’s objective is to foster deeper and further collaboration between parliamentarians from Canada, Germany and EU-member states. The main goal is to unite parliamentarians in order to construct more strategic responses to the atrocity crimes committed in Ukraine by the Russian military, and to find pathways to hold those responsible for human rights abuses to account.
