Message from the Legal Representative

When the United Nations launched the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide in 1948, the declared will was to free the humanity from this heinous scourge by emphasizing international cooperation. The resolution adopted by the UN General Assembly nearly six decades later, during the 2005 World Summit, reaffirmed the commitment to protect people from genocide, and focussed this time on the responsibility of the Nations in term of protection. Despite the efforts made and the important tools available to States, we still encounter the crime of genocide, mass crimes and the expansion of the ideology of genocide. Alongside public institutions and genocide survivors' associations involved in the education and assistance for survivors and victims of genocide, FMV has come as an added value and makes a significant contribution to refugees and immigrants.
