Genocide Areas of Concern

The Genocide Intervention Network (GI-NET) recently released it’s end of 2008 summary on Areas of Concern. The report (PDF) describes the analysis performed in early 2008 and updated throughout the year.

Areas of Concern

Darfur, eastern Chad, Central African Republic, eastern DR Congo, Somalia, Iraq, eastern Burma, and Sri Lanka.  Areas that may be added to the Areas of Concern list next year include North Korea, Ethiopia’s Ogaden region, and Afghanistan.

On Radar

The  “radar” list contains areas we are looking at closely but that do not currently constitute Areas of Concern. These include: Cote d’Ivoire, Ethiopia (Ogaden), Afghanistan, Pakistan (especially Waziristan and Baluchistan),  North Korea, Kashmir, Tibet, Indonesia, Chechnya, Ingushetia, Dagestan, Abkhazia, South Ossetia, Kordofan and South Sudan,  Zimbabwe, Nigeria, Israel-Palestine, Burundi, Kenya, Uygher areas of China (Xinjiang), Colombia, Niger/Mali, Orissa (India) and Northern Uganda.

Abeyance List

Areas of Concern denote countries and territories that are currently experiencing massive violence. Areas where violence subsides for six months or more are placed on “abeyance” if it is appropriate to remain engaged/watchful of these situations until a re-emergence of conflict is less likely. Currently no areas are on abeyance, as we are just finishing the first cycle of the analysis. In our next cycle, areas likely to be placed on abeyance include Central African Republic, and possibly eastern Chad.
