International human rights law also places obligations on State Parties to take steps to prevent the acts it seeks to prohibit. For example, the Convention against Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment specifies in Article 2 that State Parties “shall take effective legislative, administrative, judicial or other measures to prevent acts of torture”. When part of a widespread or systematic attack against a civilian population, torture can constitute a crime against humanity.

The earlier the risk factors are identified, the greater the opportunities for early prevention. As times goes on, preventive action becomes more difficult and more costly. If, for example, the motivation behind increased violence against a particular group is recognized at an early stage, it will be possible for the State or the international community to develop strategies aimed at addressing and defusing this motivation. However, if atrocity crimes are already occurring, the options available to respond will be very limited and, in some cases, may require the use of coercive measures including, if all peaceful means fail, the use of force.
What are risk factors and indicators? Risk factors are conditions that increase the risk of or susceptibility to negative outcomes. Those identified in this framework include behaviors, circumstances or elements that create an environment conducive to the commission of atrocity crimes, or indicate the potential, probability or risk of their occurrence. Risk factors are not all the same. Some are structural in nature, such as the weakness of State structures, while others pertain to more dynamic circumstances or events, such as triggering factors. Triggers and other dynamic elements transform general risk into an increased likelihood that atrocities crimes will be committed.
RISK FACTOR 2  --- Record of serious violations of international human rights and humanitarian law---Record of serious violations of international human rights and humanitarian law Past or current serious violations of international human rights and humanitarian law, particularly if assuming an early pattern of conduct, and including those amounting to atrocity crimes, that have not been prevented, punished or adequately addressed, and as a result, create a risk of further violations.!.
Indicators 2.1 --- Past or present serious restrictions to  or violations of international human rights and humanitarian law, particularly if assuming an early pattern of conduct and if targeting protected groups, populations or individuals.!. (Disabled Americans)

3.4 -- Lack of effective civilian control of security forces. 
3.5 -- High Levels Of Corruption Or Poor Governance.

8.12 -- Acts related to accountability processes, particularly when perceived as unfair.
