Genocide is a term used to describe a premeditated and systematic campaign to exterminate or harm an ethnic, national, racial, or religious group in part or in whole. This can include mass killings, forced population displacement, restrictions on cultural customs or traditions, and other forms of physical and psychological harm or abuse.

The Genocide Risk Rate is a measure used to assess the potential risk of occurrence of genocide within a given geographical area over a specific time frame. This is evaluated based on a range of factors, including political stability, ethnic tensions, history of violence, strength of democratic institutions, and respect for human rights.

Prevention refers to efforts and measures taken to decrease or eliminate the likelihood of a detrimental event from happening. In the context of genocide, prevention strategies might include initiatives to promote interethnic understanding and cooperation, strengthening democratic institutions, ensuring respect for human rights, and conflict resolution efforts.
