Enough is dedicated to ending genocide and crimes against humanity, and preventing them from occurring in the future.
Enough is a project of the Center for American Progress to end genocide and crimes against humanity. Founded in 2007, Enough focuses on the crises in Sudan, Chad, eastern Congo, northern Uganda, and Somalia. Enough's strategy papers and briefings provide sharp field analysis and targeted policy recommendations based on a “3P” crisis response strategy: promoting durable peace, providing civilian protection, and punishing perpetrators of atrocities. The Enough Project works with concerned citizens, advocates, and policy makers to prevent, mitigate, and resolve these crises.
Enough conducts intensive field research in countries plagued by genocide and crimes against humanity, develops practical policies to address these crises, and shares sensible tools to help empower citizens and groups working for change. The initial work has focused on grave challenges in a number of African countries.
The Enough Project seeks to build leverage for peace and justice in Africa by helping to create real consequences for the perpetrators and facilitators of genocide and other mass atrocities. Enough aims to counter rights-abusing armed groups and violent kleptocratic regimes that are fueled by grand corruption, transnational crime and terror, and the pillaging and trafficking of minerals, ivory, diamonds, and other natural resources. Enough conducts field research in conflict zones, develops and advocates for policy recommendations, supports social movements in affected countries, and mobilizes public campaigns.
Enough was conceived in 2006 by a small group of concerned policymakers and activists who wanted to transform their frustration about inaction into pragmatic solutions and hope. Co-founded by Africa experts Gayle Smith and John Prendergast, Enough launched in early 2007. Enough is a project of the New Venture Fund, and is based in Washington, DC.
To change the way the world responds to these crises, Enough Project uses the following tools of change:
Enough combines up-to-date analysis of ongoing crises from the researchers in the field with rigorous policy analysis from experts with experience in the executive and legislative branches of the U.S. government and international organizations. Enough produces regular strategy papers and briefings that provide in-depth assessments about what is happening on the ground.
Based on comprehensive field and policy analysis, Enough speaks directly with policy makers and recommends concrete policy actions that will put an end to genocide and mass atrocities and prevent them in the future.
Enough works with a diverse array of partner organizations to strengthen and empower a growing activist movement for change. Collectively, Enough Project make it clear to national and international leaders that practical solutions exist and must be pursued now.
Enough Project also promote specific, meaningful actions that individuals, can take to help end genocide and crimes against humanity.
With these tools Enough Project can drive structural and systemic change to transform the United States from a late responder to a world leader in the prevention of genocide and crimes against humanity.
