New Partners

We are very pleased to welcome three new GAAMAC partners:

  • Montreal Institute for Genocide and Human Rights Studies (MIGS)
  • Liberation War Museum (LWM)
  • Parliamentarians for Global Action (PGA)

Welcome and we look forward to cooperating with you.

GAAMAC partners are those organizations and states that have expressed interest in supporting "the mission, function, operational modality and principles of partnership of GAAMAC" as articulated in the Founding Document.

GAAMAC partners will appear on the GAAMAC website. They will be involved in formal and informal consultations related to GAAMAC activities.
