The Online Encyclopedia of Mass Violence (OEMV) is an online encyclopedia with the objective of documenting massacres which have occurred in the 20th century.[1][2]

The project was founded by Jacques Sémelin.[3] The Centre d’Etudes et de Recherches Internationales, Science Po (Paris), and the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique and The Hamburg Institute for Social Research are working on the project.[4] Claire Andrieu (Sciences Po Paris) is currently supervising the project.
