The Center for the Prevention of Genocide Announces the Release of the
‘Summary Reports’ Edition of The Genocide Prevention Quarterly

Arlington, VA – The Center for the Prevention of Genocide, an affiliate organization of Improve the World International, announces the release of its’ ‘Summary Reports’ edition of the Genocide Prevention Quarterly.

The ‘Summary Reports’ edition is a collection of the Center’s two years of country reports.  It features brief, reference-sized summaries of the world’s remote hotspots.  It is a benefit to anyone looking for a quick reference guide to remote regions throughout the world where conflict and genocidal markers are present.  This edition includes articles from U.S. Assistant Secretary of State for Human Rights, Lorne Craner, and the Director of the Center for the Prevention of Genocide, Richard O’Brien.  Assistant Secretary of State Craner has written, “Combating Genocide: A key Component of U.S. Foreign Policy,” while Mr. O’Brien’s “Intervention in the 5th Circle of Hell,” is an examination of the violence in DR Congo.

The Genocide Prevention Quarterly seeks to advance the field of genocide prevention and provide practical solutions to the ongoing problem of genocide.  Drawing articles from scholars, policy experts and first-hand witnesses to acts of genocide, the Quarterly serves as a gathering point where these perspectives can come together and contribute to the international dialogue.

The Center for the Prevention of Genocide is recognized as one of the world’s few early warning systems for the detection and prevention of violent human rights abuses and genocide.  The Center monitors international hotspots for indicators of genocide and develops resources, people and organizations, that report and confirm such massive human rights abuses.  The Center collects real-time information from the field, then immediately forwards it to the appropriate international and national authorities, other non-governmental organizations and the media.
