About the Authors
  • In the two and a half decades since the end of the Cold War, policy makers have become acutely aware of the extent to which the world today faces mass atrocities. In an effort to prevent the death, destruction, and global chaos wrought by these crimes, the agendas for both national and international policy have grown beyond conflict prevention to encompass atrocity prevention, protection of civilians, transitional justice, and the Responsibility to Protect. Yet, to date, there has been no attempt to address the topic of the prevention of mass atrocities from the theoretical, policy, and practicing standpoints simultaneously. This volume is designed to fill that gap, clarifying and solidifying the present understanding of atrocity prevention. It will serve as an authoritative work on the state of the field.

    • Includes perspectives from scholars across the globe, including three former UN special advisers
    • Revises conventional assumptions in the field of atrocity prevention, arguing the need for historically informed, contextually specific and flexible prevention
    • Updates on the use of 'big data' in atrocity prevention as well as Argentina's national mechanism for the prevention of genocide will be of use to policymakers and scholars
