PeaceRep and partners have published a new dashboard on perceptions of peace in South Sudan.
The dashboard allows users to explore and gain insights from this one-of-a-kind data source, including key findings on peace and security, public authority, governance, and elections.
The dashboard is the latest addition to our suite of PeaceTech data and digital tools to support policy and practice. PeaceRep is building PeaceTech innovation focused on better data for supporting adaptive management of peace and transition processes.
Perceptions of Peace Survey
The dashboard is based on a three-wave survey that recorded the views of 8,843 people from 12 countries across 9 states and special administrative areas, covering urban, rural and IDP camp environments. Respondents were asked questions about their daily experiences of safety, based on indicators of ‘everyday peace’ developed through focus groups. They also shared their views on a wide range of related topics, including elections, governance arrangements, security arrangements, trust in public authorities, civic space, national identity, and social cohesion, among others.

About PeaceRep’s research in South Sudan
PeaceRep’s South Sudan research explores public authority in South Sudan, the key dynamics between Sudan and South Sudan and their impact on each other’s transition process, and the role of different types of financial flows on governance outcomes. It will achieve this through the development of policy analyses and academic research rooted in robust evidence bases gathered in both countries and from across the world.
We are also examining perceptions of peace in South Sudan, through a series of surveys recording daily experiences of safety and views on elections, governance arrangements, security arrangements, trust in public authorities, civic space, national identity, and social cohesion.
