New Policy Paper: ‘Technological Change and the UN Framework of Analysis for Atrocity Crimes’

Jul 25, 2022

ELAC Deputy Director Federica D’Alessandra and IPS Postdoctoral Research Fellow Ross James Gildea have authored a policy paper, ‘Technological Change and UN Framework of Analysis for Atrocity Crimes’, on key and emerging challenges in atrocity prevention. The paper, which is jointly published by ELAC’s Programme on International Peace and Security (IPS), in conjunction with the Protecting Civilians in Conflict Programme and the Atrocity Prevention Study Group at the Stimson Center, examines the potential need to revise and update the UN Framework of Analysis for Atrocity Crimes—published in 2014 as an integrated analysis and risk assessment tool—given rapid advances in new and emerging technologies since its publication. The authors provide a systematic analysis of risk factors and indicators contained in the Framework of Analysis as well as offering recommendations for how a future iteration of the framework may be enhanced by recognising important technological advances that are changing the nature of mass atrocity prevention and response.
