PeaceRep Executive Director, Christine Bell, will host a hybrid Breakout Session at the 2023 Data for Peace Conference on Peace Analytics and PeaceRep’s new Peace and Transition Process Tracker.
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.
At the hybrid event next week, Christine will introduce plans for PeaceRep’s new peace and transition process tracker. The tracker is designed to support adaptive implementation of peace and transition agreements and builds on expansive PA-X data.
Join Christine Bell at Breakout #2 Session 3.2 for a deep dive into the challenges of tracking peace processes, what this means for ‘Peace Analytics,’ and insights into PeaceRep’s ‘PA-X Tracker’ ahead of its launch in 2024.

About the 2023 Data for Peace Conference:
This fall, the NYU Center on International Cooperation, with support from the Complex Risk Analytics Fund (CRAF’d) and its partners, will host a five-day hybrid conference with national and international experts in the data for peacebuilding and prevention ecosystem to facilitate peer-to-peer exchange and leverage emerging technologies and data science methods to tackle the growing challenges across the humanitarian-development-peace and climate nexus globally.
Peacebuilding and prevention practitioners are searching for novel approaches to tackle the growing challenges. Emerging technologies and data science methods have been recognized as potential tools to better understand and tackle some of these challenges across the humanitarian-development-peace and climate nexus. GIS, advanced analytics, machine learning, natural language processing and image processing, are some of potential “game changers” recognized by many and already utilized by some of our partners. As a power engine of all these approaches stands data, generated, and collected at unprecedented rates. And yet, there are still many gaps and problems in data availability, quality, and usability that make this work challenging.
