Please feel free to provide a short bio about yourself or the work of your organization (no more than 3 paragraphs)
I am the co-founder and executive director of the Sentinel Project for Genocide Prevention. I've been working in anti-genocide advocacy for about five years and helped to create the Sentinel Project two years ago. We are currently busy developing an early warning system that can assess the threat of genocide in a given country.
Our mission is to prevent the crime of genocide worldwide through effective early warning and cooperation with victimized peoples to carry out non-violent prevention initiatives.
A cornerstone of our work is cooperation with groups that are at risk of genocide. These are the people with the most to lose and are often left out of discussions on their situation. It is only by working together with the people living in a potentially genocidal situation that early warning can be truly effective and appropriate preventive measures can be developed.
Please list the countries and/or regions in which you (or your organization) have direct and significant expertise

How many years professional experience do you have ?
I shared the report with the whos who in the peace and conflict sector in Kenya. Guess what out of more than 10 contacts only one got interested and asked for further details. The aloof nature with which we approach early warning and response is the reason as to why most incidents go unpredicted.
I am in now in Somalia doing a conflict anlysis project for the FAO-UN....Lets talk more
