The Early Warning Project is a useful new site for the classroom – and an important site for the entire world.

It’s a joint project of the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum and Dartmouth College. It:

measures, tracks, and analyzes known risk factors that could lead to a future instance of mass atrocities. The data, along with real-time analysis from regional and genocide experts, generate a forecast.

It has an interactive map, along with accessible data visualizations and narratives providing in-depth analysis of current situations in high-risk countries.

You can also read more about it in the Associated Press story, Holocaust museum tool aims to predict, prevent mass killings.

I’m adding this post to The Best Resources For Learning About Genocide.
