Genocide Prevention Project, sponsor of April 2009 Genocide Prevention Month, published a Mass Atrocity Crimes Watch List for 2008 – 2009.

The list identifies countries of high concern based on factors such as exclusionary ideology, discrimination, and presence of refugees and internally displaced persons.

The number of countries included on the list?

5? 10? 15?

How about 33!

The crimes occurring in some countries on the list have escalated to genocide (Sudan for example). One can only hope that a similar fate does not await the others.
