About Us

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 neutral and technical methods to confirm, anticipate and aid in the prevention of genocide. We use satellite imaging, 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 comprised entirely of volunteers. The staff numbers between 10-20 members and includes MA students of International Relations, Peace and Conflict Prevention, IT specialists, Satellite Imaging Specialists, Humanitarian scholars and other specialized volunteers.
