The Institute for Genocide and Mass Atrocity Prevention (I-GMAP) leverages expertise from a variety of disciplines. The I-GMAP informs practice through the application of the latest scholarship in areas such as the quantitative analysis of at-risk communities; how factors such as gender, climate change, political transitions and population flows contribute to risks for genocide and mass atrocities; and the role of governments, civil society actors and international bodies in effective prevention.
The I-GMAP oversees both curricular and scholarly activities including:
- The development of an interdisciplinary undergraduate minor in genocide and mass atrocity studies, an interdisciplinary graduate certificate in genocide and mass atrocity prevention and a new master's degree in genocide and mass atrocity prevention that will include hands-on work with prevention initiatives through a program of externships;
- Support for new and innovative scholarship through a program of research grants for faculty and doctoral students;
- Hosting of post-doctoral fellows to advance research and contribute to curriculum development;
- Hosting of practitioners-in-residence to share their insights on challenges and successes of work in GMAP prevention; and
- Hosting of annual conferences, seminars and workshops around thematic or regional foci.
