walking towards prevention


Working towards Prevention is the working paper series of the Budapest Centre for the International Prevention of Genocide and Mass Atrocities.

Working towards Prevention has been designed with the following objectives:

  • Offer to those working in close collaboration with the Centre a space where to share their academic work, including work in progress;
  • Offer to emerging researchers the opportunity to submit their work and share it with the broader public;
  • Make academic work on genocide and mass atrocity prevention accessible to those who do not enjoy access to subscription journals (e.g. people not affiliated with a university community);
  • Circulate emerging and innovative research in genocide and mass atrocity prevention that has not yet found its space in mainstream academic publications;
  • Provide a platform where ongoing project can be circulated in a preliminary form in order to gather ameliorative feedback from the broader public.

While it is expected that most working papers in the series will be authored by researchers working in close cooperation with the Centre, we welcome submission from external researchers as long as they meet good academic standards and relate to mass atrocity prevention.

Submissions are expected to follow one of the major author-date citation systems (Harvard, Chicago, APA), to include a short abstract (250 words max), and to be between 4000 and 8000 words in length.

The Centre reserves the right to decided what submissions will be published in Working towards Prevention.
