Early Warning System


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 three functions between compiling evidence of ongoing or potential genocide through to the intervention in those actions. These are:

  • Monitoring Research

  • On-the-Ground Asset Development

  • Providing the Evidence

  • Monitoring and Research: Assisted by several of the nations top genocide scholars and a team of students trained in conflict resolution, the Center uses technical and well defined standards to track the severity of human rights abuses.
    On-the-Ground Asset Development: The Center uses multimedia outreach into areas where genocide is most likely to take place in order to secure first-hand reports of the situation.
    Providing 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, appropriate UN member nations and departments, U.S. government agencies, and the media.
