The Enough Project 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. 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. In framing its policy prescriptions, Enough utilizes a "3P" approach promoting peace, protecting civilians, and punishing perpetrators. Enough also focuses on a fourth and all-encompassing "P", prevention, and is working to develop the policies, tools, and investments that can best be brought to bear to prevent crimes against humanity and genocide now and in the future.
