Seeing Conflict through Data: Visualising Peace Process Trajectories

April 25 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm


Conflict seems ever-present at the moment. In too many places, wars and disputes flare up and rumble on, and peace-making efforts follow in their wake. But all too often, the vital evidence about what is happening can be hard to find and interpret.

Edinburgh DataVis Community is back with a talk from two researchers from the Peacerep programme, a peace and conflict resolution evidence platform which seeks to collate and visualise this critical information.

Tomas Vancisin and Niamh Henry will talk about the aims of the multi-institution project, and give us a glimpse into how they display and make use of the wide variety of data they gather.

WHEN: 6 pm, Thursday 25 April 2024

WHERE: Inspace, 1 Crichton Street

For further details and to register, please visit MeetUp.

The Edinburgh DataVis Meetup is an informal community event open to all, that has been bringing together practitioners, designers, academics and the just plain curious in this highly active field since 2018.

This is a joint event with Newcastle University, and a hybrid event.
A zoom link will be shared a couple days before the event date.
Doors open at 18:00; talk starts at 18:15. Non-alcoholic refreshments provided.

Description of the talk:
PeaceRep is building PeaceTech innovation focused on better data for supporting adaptive management of peace and transition processes. We are producing a state of the art method for measuring change across a portfolio of indicators, to support analysis of peace processes and implementation. As the cornerstone of our PeaceTech work, the PA-X Peace Agreements Database contains more than 2,000 peace agreements from peace processes between 1990 and 2022. PA-X data underpins a range of digital tools to support policy and practice, including visualisations, trackers, interactive timelines, infographics, and a mobile app.

In this event Tomas Vancisin and Niamh Henry will talk through the design and development of key PeaceRep visualisations that have had impact in the field of peace building to better understand trajectories of peace processes. This includes temporal, network, geospatial and combined visualisations.
