Aegis Trust

United Kingdom


Genocide tears apart families, communities and societies. It takes decades of reconciliation, peace- building and support to repair the damage done, and constant vigilance to ensure it does not happen again.

The Aegis Trust has a clear mission – to work towards the prediction, prevention and ultimate elimination of genocide. We do this primarily through research, education and the dissemination of information and advice.

Our vision is of a world without genocide or mass atrocities.

We aim to make our vision a reality by:

  • Helping survivors to rebuild their lives

  • Honouring the memory of victims of genocide

  • Building long-term peace in post-genocide societies

  • Documenting the experiences of survivors, perpetrators and rescuers

  • Confronting the prejudice and beliefs that lead to genocide

  • Providing evidence-based policy advice to decision-makers

  • Conducting research in places where genocide is a threat

  • Making the voices of those at risk heard

  • Our genocide prevention model has three phases.

Aegis treats genocide as a public health issue with three phases:

Phase One: Primary Prevention
Research, remembrance and learning about the past, creating community resilience against the risk of genocide in the future

Phase Two: Secondary Prevention
Evidence-based campaigns to stop mass atrocities in the present

Phase Three: Tertiary prevention
Supporting survivors and communities to rebuild when genocide is past
