MISSION & VISION
Genocide Watch exists to predict, prevent, stop, and punish genocide and other forms of mass murder. We seek to raise awareness and influence public policy concerning potential and actual genocide. Our purpose is to build an international movement to prevent and stop genocide.
We address genocide as it is defined in the Genocide Convention: “the intentional destruction, in whole or in part, of a national, ethnic, racial or religious group, as such.” We also address political mass murder, ethnic cleansing, and other genocide-like crimes. Genocide Watch is the Coordinating organization of The Alliance Against Genocide (AAG), an international coalition of organizations. The AAG aims to educate the general public and policy makers about the causes, processes, and warning signs of genocide; to create the institutions and political will to prevent and stop genocide; and to bring perpetrators of genocide to justice.
