Mapping genocide to prevent it

What if an app could project which countries are most at risk for genocide, and help stop it before it starts? The US Holocaust Memorial Museum has done just that. Early Warning Project has been created by  the Simon-Skjokt Center for the Prevention of Genocide. The app analyses both what is driving risk and the nature of risk of genocide in all the countries of the world. Myanmar is most susceptible to a new episode of state-led mass killing this year. The countries in the top 20-30 range are also at risk because of lack of policy and attention. These countries include Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Guinea and Tanzania.
