Preventing Atrocities and Genocide
President Obama's announcement in late April 2012 that he has a comprehensive strategy to prevent genocide and mass atrocities and is convening a high level interagency panel to coordinate this work is one more important milestone for FCNL's work on the peaceful prevention of deadly conflict.
