Abstract:

"Fundamentals of Genocide and Mass Atrocity Prevention presents key insights into US and international efforts to prevent genocide and mass atrocities worldwide. Since the Holocaust and World War II, an international community of policy makers, scholars, and activists has developed a loose network of norms, institutions, and policy tools to prevent and respond to acts of mass violence against civilians. Fundamentals analyzes the normative, legal, and operational opportunities and challenges associated with preventing genocide and mass atrocities to date, and identifies unresolved issues in this nascent field of study and practice. It also offers important insights into opportunities to strengthen both our understanding of and our ability to implement policies and programs to stop the world's worst violence."--Goodreads.
