Early Warning and Mass Atrocity Prevention is designed specifically for our African governmental and civil society partners. In this course you will learn tools of risk assessment and early warning that, when implemented fully, can help us in our work to prevent mass atrocities before they even begin. This course will take place over four weeks. In the first week, we will focus on risk assessment as the first and most effective tool of early warning. Next, we will turn to some of the preventive response tools we have in the face of escalating crisis. In the third week you will be asked to consider what you've learned in the context of a specific case study. Finally, the fourth week of the course will outline the structure, strengths, and challenges of several early warning systems that already exist in the region. At the end of the four weeks, each of you will be required to complete a final project, where you take the tools you have and apply them to your home country. By the end of this course, you should have a much clearer idea of the nature of early warning and how to apply it to your own work.
