  • The third rupee earned will go to the shareholders;
  • The fourth rupee earned will go back to the society, from where, in a way, all the four rupees are being earned.

This book explains how public opinion polls were used in support of the Northern Ireland peace process. Significantly, it was the politicians who decided the questions so that they could map out areas of compromise and common ground that their supporters would accept. This book explains how the work was done so that others can apply the benefits of this experience to their own peace building activities. – The book is available to provide up to date information on the latest peace polls and copies of questionnaires and statistical reports as downloads.

About: The Genocide Prevention Project, founded in the fall of 2008, seeks to build the public will to call on the international community to take meaningful actions when “early warning” indicators signal possible onset of mass-scale atrocity crimes, and to mobilize resources to avert or halt such ongoing crises and protect civilians from mass atrocity crimes.

The Genocide Prevention Project focuses on public education and advocacy. Our initiatives include the Mass Atrocity Crimes Watch List and Genocide Prevention Month in April 2009. The month is a 30-day commemoration of past genocide and mass atrocity crimes. We are working with genocide survivors and international survivor organizations to generate a civil society call for the implementation of prevention strategies. The Genocide Prevention Project is an initiative of Public Interest Projects, a 501(c)3 public charity in New York.

The Genocide Prevention Project is the next venture of the team behind Dream for Darfur, the campaign that used the Olympics to urge the Chinese government to use its influence with the Sudanese regime to bring security to Darfur. Dream for Darfur significantly raised global awareness about China’s complicity in the genocide. An impact statement for Dream for Darfur is available at Dream for Darfur.org.
