Our Mission

Our mission and duty is to take practical and necessary measures to prevent genocide. The Center for the Prevention of Genocide is a nonprofit charity that serves as one of the world’s only early warning systems for massive human rights violations.

We monitor international hotspots for indicators of genocide using on-line sources, as well as people and organizations on the ground in those locations. Using these resources, we compile evidence of genocide abuse and bring the information to government organizations and the media.

 

 

History

The Center for the Prevention of Genocide was created after forty years of genocide and humanitarian scholars calling for such a center. We monitor and study precursors of genocide present around the world. We are committed to using politically neutral and technical methods to confirm, anticipate and aid in the prevention of genocide. We use on the ground resources and a network of NGO, governmental and international organizations to compile and publish evidence.

Founded in October 2000 as an affiliate charitable organization of Improve The World International, the Center is made up of 15-25 volunteer staff members, and includes MA students of International Relations, Peace and Conflict Prevention, IT specialists, Humanitarian scholars and other specialized volunteers.

Combining high academic standards and advanced technology, the Center brings nonpartisan, non-religiously affiliated information to policymakers and the media, with the goal of preventing genocide.
