The Conflict, Security, and Development Series presents Colette Mazzucelli, Adjunct Associate Professor, Center for Global Affairs, in a talk on Crisis Mapping. To RSVP, please click Here.

Discuss the potential utility of crisis mapping as a tool for monitoring and preventing human rights abuses in contexts where violence and crisis are anticipated. Drawing on the origin of “ushaidi” (which means crisis mapping) as a technology “exported from Africa” in response to the violence of the 2007-08 Kenya elections, the speaker will look at the role crisis mapping might play in that country’s upcoming elections, as well as broader uses this approach might have for preventing mass atrocity in other national contexts.
