"The issue of atrocity prevention has taken something of a beating in the last few years, a victim perhaps of the transactional approach to security and other foreign policy issues that seem to be engulfing us. Yet this is an issue that cannot go away. Its staying power is a testament to its deep moral roots. The horrors of the Holocaust and the knowledge of the capacity of man for cruelty to his fellow man will haunt the world forever. The experience of our modern history– in Yugoslavia, Rwanda, Sudan, South Sudan, the Central African Republic and elsewhere – leave no doubt that mankind has not yet fulfilled to pledge of “never again” to the kinds of horrors that one would have hoped had been relegated to the dust heap of history. Men and women of good conscience must not avert their attention."
