Framework of Analysis for Atrocity Crimes: A tool for prevention

In October 2014 the UN Office of the Special Advisers on the Prevention of Genocide and the Responsibility to Protect released the Framework of Analysis for Atrocity Crimes. The Framework provides a comprehensive list of risk indicators to better help the international community act early when to prevent atrocities. The Framework is broken down into two sets of risk factors: common risk factors that address concerns more broadly and specific risk factors which detail indicators specific to genocide, crimes against humanity and war crimes.
