The primary focus of this center is to undertake practical
measures to prevent genocide. While the educational programs lay down
a long term framework for building a worldwide body of knowledge on
preventative measures, it is incumbent upon this center to begin these
practical applications as soon as possible.
This center will perform four functions
between compiling evidence of ongoing or potential genocide through
to the intervention in those actions. These are:
  Monitoring and Research
  On-the-Gound Asset Development
  Satellite Imaging
  Facilitating the Evidence
Monitoring and Research: Has several of
the nations top genocide scholars as consultants and trained team
of Conflict Resolution MA students, this component uses technical
and well defined definitions and standards to track the severity of
human rights abuses.
On-the-Gound Asset Development: Is a multi-media
outreach into those particular areas where genocide is most likely
to take place in order to secure first hand knowledge of the situation
and specific coordinates in order to take a satellite imaging photograph.
Satellite Imaging: Once a situation of unfolding
genocide is confirmed a satellite image is taken and compared to its
in-house reference image by satellite imaging specialists.
Facilitating the Evidence: If the compiled
evidence shows the presence of acts of genocide as defined by the
UN Genocide Convention the center will follow a plan of action to
inform the UN Security Council, several departments of the US government,
several UN member nations and the media
