This CSV contains data that summarize findings about the impact of each factor on each tool’s effectiveness in preventing mass atrocities and closely-related outcomes.
This CSV contains data that summarize our conclusions about each report’s findings about (1) the average effects of atrocity prevention tools and (2) the impact of contextual and design factors on the effectiveness of atrocity prevention tools. The CSV also contains data about the methods that each report uses.
The data dictionary provides explanatory information for all variables in the downloadable data files. (PDF)
- Practitioner Perspectives
To complement our review of research literature, we interviewed experienced practitioners to seek their perspectives on the factors that are associated with effective use of specific atrocity prevention tools. These reports summarize the results to date, which are also displayed alongside findings from our research review. We expect to post additional reports here periodically.
