The President’s remarks underscore the need for leaders to serve their people rather than to use government as a means for personal enrichment.

New Early Warning Project from the USHMM

Earlier this week, the Simon Skjodt Center for the Prevention of Genocide at the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum publicly launched a new tool to forecast the countries at highest risk for state-led mass killings. The Early Warning Project, a joint initiative between the Holocaust Museum and Dartmouth College's Dickey Center for International Understanding, has been in a pilot phase for two year and aims to identify situations of potential state-led mass killing and employ its information and accountability role to solicit action to preclude future genocides. By tracking and publicizing precursors to such significant violence against civilians, the Early Warning Project “hopes to empower officials and advocates to take preventive action and adopt strategies to avert future atrocities.”

Neither NOOW or its partner The Enough Project are affiliated with any religion or sect, but given their joint work with The Sentry, both organizations took note of the Pope's landmark speech in D.C. He questioned the mechanisms of and reasoning for weapons trade with violent regimes and armed groups, utilizing this platform to condemn such practices.

NGOs Push African Union Chair for Action on South Sudan Ahead of AU Peace and Security Council Meeting

In a letter to the African Union (AU) chairperson, Nkosazana Dlamini Zuma, NOOW partner the Enough Project joined with 37 South Sudanese and international organizations, urging that the meeting should be used to support the establishment of an AU commission-created hybrid court for South Sudan. The court would try grave crimes committed in the country’s recent conflict, as provided for in the August peace agreement between the parties to the conflict. The organizations also urged Dlamini Zuma to help ensure the long-awaited publication of the report by the AU Commission of Inquiry on South Sudan.
