The Alliance Against Genocide

The Alliance Against Genocide is an international coalition dedicated to creating the international institutions and the political will to prevent genocide. Founded in 1999, the Alliance is made up of over 65 organizations from around the world and was the first coalition of organizations focused completely on preventing genocide.

The Alliance Against Genocide has four goals:

1. The provision of public information on the nature of genocide and creation of the political will to prevent and stop it.

2. The creation of effective early-warning systems to alert the world and especially the U.N., regional organizations and national governments about potential ethnic conflict and genocide.

3. Motivation of international, regional, and national action to stop genocidal processes, including effective diplomacy and mobilization of rapid response forces to prevent and stop genocide.

4. Effective arrest, trial, and punishment of those who commit genocide, including the effective functioning of the International Criminal Court, the use of national courts with universal jurisdiction, and the creation of special courts to prosecute perpetrators of genocide.
