Collin Meisel, the Associate Director of Geopolitical Analysis at the Pardee institute, presented Pardee Institute's Perceived Mass Atrocities Dataset (PMAD) during a round table meeting hosted by Bridging the Gap and the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, DC.  

The PMAD is a research project that aims to collect and analyze data on perceived mass atrocities worldwide. It provides insights into incidents of violence, human rights abuses, and atrocities that may not be officially documented but are crucial for understanding conflict dynamics.  

The meeting, titled “Mass Atrocities Beyond Mass Killing,” provided a platform for participants to learn about research and data needs from the policymaking community, as well as the broad contribution and applicability of Pardee Institute’s research.  

It was co-hosted and co-moderated by Scrivner Institute Professor Naaz Barma, whose role served as a pleasant reminder of the Korbel School's reach in policy-applied international studies research. 

The presentation of PMAD underscores the Frederick S. Pardee Institute for International Futures commitment to advancing knowledge and understanding in the field of international affairs, particularly in the context of mass atrocities and conflicts dynamics.
