Crisis Mapping and Peacebuilding

Insight on Conflict, initially mentioned on campus-adr, is a new portal dedicated to rendering more visible “the unknown, virtually invisible, civil society peacebuilding initiatives which exist in tens, hundreds or even thousands in every conflict area.” The goal of the project is to “make them visible to policy makers, the media and other peace practitioners.”

The portal enables users to map and track activities based on seven core themes:

  • Community Action
  • Culture & Media
  • Development
  • Human Rights
  • Religious and Ethnic Diversity
  • Women
  • Young People

The platform also allows users to navigate the web-based interface by region, and provides RSS feeds, detailed country profiles and interactive maps.

The User Guide includes a visual review of the key features of the site.

  1. Hi,

    Just to let you know, Insight on Conflict has recently relaunched. We’ve updated all the information on the local peacebuilders, and rearranged the structure of the site to make it a lot more user-friendly & accessible. I hope you get the chance to take a look.

    Thanks,

    Joel
