Genocide Prevention Task Force
The Genocide Prevention Task Force was launched on November 13, 2007, and released its report to the public on December 8, 2008. Jointly convened by the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, The American Academy of Diplomacy, and the United States Institute of Peace and funded by private foundations, the Task Force seeks to (1) spotlight genocide prevention as a national priority, and (2) develop practical policy recommendations to enhance the capacity of the US government to respond to emerging threats of genocide and mass atrocities.
