Track Local Peacebuilding Initiatives via Insight on Conflict website

image A new website entitled Insight on Conflict has been launched by the U.K.-based Peace Direct team. Insight on Conflict is a portal dedicated to calling attention to “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 site enables you to track activities based on a set of core themes (Community Action, Culture & Media, Development, Human Rights, Religious and Ethnic Diversity, Women, and Young People), or by region, and it provides RSS feeds, detailed country profiles and interactive maps. The User Guide (a pdf) provides a visual review of the key features of the site. Quite a nice new addition to the conflict studies research toolkit.
