Dartmouth Professor and Students Collaborate on Early Warning Project

Associate Professor of Government Benjamin Valentino and the John Sloan Dickey Center for International Understanding partnered with the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, D.C. to architect the Early Warning Project in early September.  This project helps to forecast mass atrocities across the globe by using uses public data and advanced methodologies to assess the risk of a mass killings in each country.  Professor Valentino and his collaborators hope that the site will help prevent these atrocities before they occur and direct attention to areas at risk.  A prototype for this project was originally developed by the DALI Lab with support from the Neukom Institute. The Early Warning Project has been publicized by a number of media outlets, including The New York Times, The Washington Post, and U.S. News & World Report.
