Genocide Watch: Monitoring and Research

The Genocide Monitoring Chart
 
A large part of facilitating genocide prevention is a system of following up precursors and unfolding human rights violations
 
The Genocide Prevention Center collaborates with neutral observers within and near the areas of devastation who are able to confirm first hand reports of massive abuse or prepartions for such abuse.
 
Using technical, non-political, and non-religious based standards, the center will search for trends toward genocide among the 25-50 nations being tracked. The standards, definitions, and indicators are available at all times to the public on the Genocide Prevention Center’s web site at www.improvetheworld.org.
The Center uses state of the art technology to monitor and prevent genocide
 
The satellite imaging division is designed to take photographs of massive human rights violations as they unfold. This type of technology has never before been employed by a nonprofit humanitarian organization, because it has only been recently declassified.
 
 
As on-the-ground violation reports come in and are confirmed as probable indicators of genocide, a satellite image will be commissioned of the area
 
 
THE FOUR TIERS OF GENOCIDE
 
FIRST TIER — FULL SCALE GENOCIDE
The Center recognizes the 1949 UN Convention on Genocide’s definition as "full-scale" genocide. Any of the following acts with the intent to destroy, in whole or part, a national, ethnic, racial or religious group. Also included is the category of ideological genocide.
SECOND TIER — DE FACTO MILITARY GENOCIDE
The Second tier includes intentional military targeting of civilian population centers and/or when multiple human rights violations take a predominant toll on human lives of a specific unarmed public ethnicity, race, religious or idological group.
THIRD TIER — MULTIPLE HUMAN RIGHTS VIOLATIONS
When a combination of several human rights abuses from the "fourth tier" are present, thus indicating a potential danger of massive human rights abuse or genocide.
FOURTH TIER — ISOLATED HUMAN RIGHTS ABUSES

When one or a few civil and/or human rights violations are present without posing a serious immediate physical threat.
