Title

Recognizing and Preventing Genocide Through Risk Assessments

Description

David F. Putnam Science Center, Room 161
Genocide often starts before one drop of blood is even spilt. In identifying risk factors we can stop genocide before that ever happens. Today, there are many models of risk assessments, which are internationally used to identify genocide, and each contain many different factors. Factors are important to recognize because if a situation is dangerous, steps can be taken to minimize the risk before it turns genocidal. There are currently five major studies of risk assessment which show the state of a nation in regards to genocide. Within all these risk assessment models, there are three primary communal risk factors that increase the potential for genocide which are political, economic, and social instabilities and inequalities. By truly understanding these three main risk factors we will be more adept to identify major threats and to help prevent future genocide.
