Under international law, genocide is defined by the intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethnic, racial or religious group. This includes acts of violence and imposing measures intended to prevent births within the group. A big component of the campaign to end genocide is instituting early warning systems to prevent genocide before it happens. This monitoring is carried out by governmental as well as non-governmental organizations such as Genocide Watch and International Crisis Group. While individuals can be prosecuted for genocide, States can also be held legally responsible for committing acts of genocide.
