The recently published report Preventing Genocide: A Blueprint for U.S. Policymakers (the Albright-Cohen Report) is a welcome addition to the growing efforts to realize the often invoked promise, ‘‘Never again.’’1 In fact, it constitutes the first attempt to translate the existing research on genocide prevention into a policy guide for decision makers, and it deserves praise for taking this step. In particular, from a European perspective, one would hope that institutions and actors such as the Imperial War Museum in London, the International Task Force for Holocaust Education, Research and Remembrance, and the Stiftung fu ̈ r Wissenschaft und Politik in Berlin will engage in similar work to add new perspectives and inspire European leaders.
