The Simon-Skjodt Center for the Prevention of Genocide uses a multi-pronged program of research, policy engagement, training and education, outreach, and coalition building. We focus on disrupting mass violence at every stage through three strategic approaches:
Prevention tools and practices. Identifying ways in which governments and institutions can intervene at the early warning signs of potential violence, and calling for action before atrocities begin.
Crisis response. Mobilizing lawmakers and foreign policy leaders to take action to save lives when violence explodes.
Justice and accountability. Promote justice and accountability efforts for victim and survivor communities in situations where there is a history of atrocities, ongoing atrocities, or a high risk of future violence.
