"The Contracting Parties confirm that genocide, whether committed in time of peace or in time of war, is a crime under international law which they undertake to prevent and punish."


– 1948 United Nations Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide
 



For more than 50 years, genocide scholars have called for an organization that would concentrate its efforts on practical measures to prevent genocide. The Center for the Prevention of Genocide seeks to fill that need.

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.

The Center for the Prevention of Genocide monitors international hotspots for indicators of genocide, develops resources – people and organizations – who report and confirm massive human rights violations, commission satellite images of the area as evidence to corroborate the reports, and facilitate the evidence to the UN Security Council, UN member nations, the media, and departments within the US government.
