star this property answer text <p>The British Government’s global network of embassies, strong international partnerships, and early warning mechanisms give the UK significant insight into emerging threats. The UK remains committed to the Responsibility to Protect and seeks to respond to developing threats of atrocity crimes or genocide including through prevention projects, sanctions regimes or support for justice systems. Our seat on the UN Security Council also means we swiftly engage where a threat of such crimes emerges. Where prevention has failed, it is the international community's responsibility to take collective action, through diplomatic, humanitarian and other means. Where necessary, the UN Security Council should be ready to authorise coercive measures under Chapter VII of the UN Charter.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The British Government produces an annual internal risk report on fragile states called Countries at Risk of Instability (CRI). The report is used to help policy makers prioritise countries for Government engagement and ensure that policy responses are best placed to tackle evolving instability risks. As part of the CRI process, indicators that highlight a higher risk of mass atrocities occurring are used, such as levels of internal state repression, levels of inter-communal factionalism and the type of regime a country operates. The reports indicator set reflects best practice from many similar non-governmental organisations and partner governments approaches. Data is collected from a wide range of sources, including academia and Government subject matter expertise. The report is produced by the Cabinet Office and coordinates input from all relevant government departments and agencies.</p><p> </p><p> </p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Government's approach to preventing mass atrocities is rooted firmly in our wider conflict prevention and peacebuilding activity. This begins with actively looking out for signs of countries at risk of instability, to reduce the risks of violence, promote good governance, support the rule of law, building inclusive societies, and enabling effective judicial and security sector reform. We aim to foster environments where atrocity crimes are less likely to take place.</p><p>In Yemen we play a leading role in support of UN-led efforts political resolution of the conflict. We are also supporting a range of conflict prevention and peacebuilding activities through the Conflict Stability and Security Fund (with £7 million budget this financial year for Yemen). We take very seriously allegations of any violation of International Humanitarian Law (IHL) by actors in the conflict in Yemen, and call upon all parties to abide by their obligations under IHL. We regularly raise the importance of compliance with IHL with the Saudi-led Coalition in Yemen.</p>
