PeaceRep Executive Director, Christine Bell, will address online and in-person audiences next week in New York City to discuss the digital transformation of peacebuilding, including PeaceRep’s groundbreaking work on peace analytics.
Attendees will be granted a first look at PeaceRep’s pioneering new tracker tool ahead of its launch in 2024, which aims to contextualise available data to better understand the process of peacebuilding.
On 16 October 2023, Christine Bell will address the 2023 Data for Peace Conference in a session titled ‘Peace Analytics: Peace and Transition Process Tracker’.
At the hybrid event next week, attendees will learn about plans for PeaceRep’s new peace and transition process tracker ahead of its launch in 2024. The tracker is designed to support adaptive implementation of peace and transition agreements and builds on expansive PA-X data.
The PA-X Peace Agreements Database is the most comprehensive online archive, database, and dataset of peace agreements and processes between 1990-2023. However, there is a need to contextualise this data in order to analyse how peace agreements and negotiations unfold as part of a process.
Real-time tracking and mapping of peace processes, the conditions around them, and their impact on levels of peace within a country is challenging for many reasons, but can help identify trends and inform policymakers and the general public.
You can join Christine Bell’s Breakout Session virtually, free of charge, to learn about the challenges of tracking peace processes, what this means for ‘Peace Analytics’, and for first insights into the new ‘PA-X Tracker’ ahead of its launch in 2024.
