The Center for the Prevention of Genocide Announces the Launch of New
Human Rights Resource Website:
www.genocideprevention.org

Arlington, VA —  As part of its mission to educate the public, policy makers and scholars to the enduring problem of genocide, the Center for the Prevention of Genocide announces the launch of its new human rights resource website: www.genocideprevention.org.

The Center for the Prevention of Genocide is recognized as one of the world’s few early warning systems for the detection of genocidal activity. The Center collects real-time information from the field, then forwards it to the appropriate international and national authorities, other non-governmental organizations and the media. Now the public, policymakers, human rights NGOs, scholars and journalists can access the most recent reports of genocidal activities, by country, as they are confirmed and updated on the website’s new Hotspot Micro-Reports feature.

The site features Country Reports, Hotspot Micro-Reports, scholarly journals, bibliographies, access to the latest news articles and links to other human rights NGO’s. The Hotspot Micro-Report serves as a quick reference guide to current events, conflicts and verified reports of abuses around the world. The Country Reports provide an in-depth examination of the history of the conflict and detailed reports of human rights abuses in each area monitored by the Center.  

The website also contains the latest edition of The Genocide Prevention Quarterly, the Center’s academic journal featuring articles from genocide scholars, policy experts and first-hand witnesses to acts of genocide. Reports of human rights violations, ethnic tensions and genocidal activities can also be reported directly to the Center through its “Report an Incident” feature.  The site also includes the Center’s most recent press releases and a calendar of upcoming events.

An archive of all 22 Country Reports and previous editions of The Genocide Prevention Quarterly will be available online in coming weeks.

For more information on the website or the Center for the Prevention of Genocide, visit www.genocideprevention.org or contact Rebecca C. Lemmon at (703) 528-1002.
