In December 2020, the Simon-Skjodt Center for the Prevention of Genocide of the Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington DC, published a new report “Countries at Risk for Mass Killing 2020–21: Early Warning Project Statistical Risk Assessment Results.” The report, prepared in cooperation with Dartmouth College’s Dickey Center for International Understanding, shines a spotlight on countries where mass killings have not begun, but where the risk of such violence is high. The authors of the report define mass killing as “when the deliberate actions of armed groups result in the deaths of at least 1,000 noncombatant civilians targeted as part of a specific group over one year or less.”
