Conflict and Atrocities Prevention

Grants made to stop conflict before it begins or increases in intensity, and to prevent mass atrocities (e.g., crimes against humanity, genocide, ethnic cleansing, mass killings) from occurring. Mass atrocities typically occur during or as a precedent to conflict. Grants in this category address a variety of preventative measures including early warning mechanisms, dangerous speech, peacekeeping, and the responsibility to protect.
