Atrocities Watch Africa Monitor
No 2, March 2022

Atrocities Watch Africa (AWA) is a non-partisan, civil society organisation that intends to provide continental leadership in matters pertaining to the prevention of mass atrocities within Africa, our strategies and approaches are grounded in the realization that atrocities can be prevented through various interventions, including, but not limited to, early warning mechanisms, diplomatic efforts, use of social media and new technologies, litigation, and advocacy campaigns.

This newsletter builds on our team’s continuous monitoring of the region that allows us to identify deteriorating situations where atrocities may be committed as well as track ongoing situations of ongoing atrocities to detect increasing tendencies or opportunities for improvement.

This month we begin with a feature on coups d’etat and their implications for the risk of mass atrocity.

Countries we were watching in February 2022:

  • Cameroon
  • Democratic Republic of the Congo
  • Ethiopia
  • Libya
  • Mozambique
  • Nigeria
