The 5th Lemkin Reunion
These are the papers presented at the 5th Lemkin Reunion, held in March 2019 and organized by the Shattuck Center at the School of Public Policy, Central European University in Budapest. Each year the Shattuck Center hosts the Lemkin Reunion, a gathering named in honor of Raphael Lemkin, the Polish lawyer who lost his family in the Holocaust and first coined the word genocide. He campaigned tirelessly during his life to ensure that the crime of genocide was enshrined in international law. The Lemkin Reunion gathers policymakers involved in responding to atrocity crimes and assess the lessons they learned.

The Aleppo Project Papers
Aleppo Project reports focus on the past, present and possible futures of the city. Some examine issues within Syria while others bring lessons from other experiences around the world. We welcome your feedback and answers to the questions that these papers may raise. We occasionally update papers if we have new information, particularly information that relates directly to the city. The Aleppo Project papers come in three formats: a one-page summary, a six-page briefing and full papers that are up to 25-pages long. Download the papers by following the links below.

The Aleppo Weekly is a compilation of what CCNR staff found to be the week's most compelling stories, images, videos, and other resources that provide information about the life in the Syrian city, analyze the conflict that is destroying it, and help residents plan for their future. The weekly follows topics of interest to the Center's researchers, and has a special focus on those displaced from the city and others whose voices are rarely heard when it comes to peacemaking or reconstruction. The weekly covered a period from March 2015 to September of 2016.
