We work with organisations to set up monitoring. Our approach focuses on monitoring of events and their impacts on people and their livelihoods. Find out about some of our past projects and what organisations are doing with the data.
The International Federation of Journalists is campaigning to end the impunity of threats and attacks against journalists and is calling for a UN Convention to Protect Journalists. This campaign work is based on the knowledge that 100s of journalists have been killed in recent years. Between 2012-2014, Insecurity Insight supported the International Federation of Journalists in working on monitoring on attacks on journalists.
In 2011 the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) launched the Health Care in Danger project to highlight and address violence against patients and health-care workers. The decision to start of the campaign was based on the data presented in the 16 country study prepared by Insecurity Insight. Between 2008 -2011, Christina, Robin and Nathan worked for the ICRC setting up a system for collecting, processing and analyse attacks on health care based on open sources and contributions from the ICRC Delegations.
Action on Armed Violence is monitoring the number of civilians killed and injured by explosive weapons and raises awareness of the plight for civilians from the use of explosive weapons in populated areas (EWIPA) . Between 2009-2010, Insecurity Insight helped Landmine Action UK – who later became Action on Armed Violence – to set up the Explosive Weapons Monitor that has been running since 2011.
Aids-Free World uses high-level advocacy, strategic communications, and creative legal approaches, to address gender equality as a root cause of the HIV pandemic. In 2008 and 2009, Nathan Taback worked with Aids-Free World to set up a system to systematically analyse the testimonies of rape victims affiliated with the opposition movement during the election campaign in Zimbabwe. Using this method, Aids-free World was able to generate sound evidence that these rapes were both widespread and systematic based on the striking patterns that demonstrates that the incidents were unlikely to be coincidental.
In 2006, the Alliance against rape in conflict (DARC) was launched in Geneva with the aim to bring practical help to women who suffered from sexual violence in conflict. In 2007, Christina supported DARC Alliance in the development of a monitoring framework for incidents of sexual violence in conflict.
Since 2018, the World Health Organisation is running the Surveillance System of Attacks on Healthcare., a global standardized and systemic approach to collecting data of attacks on health care. WHO Country Offices work closely with partners to ensure there is a wide and inclusive range of reporting contributors. Christina has supported the development of the system through advice and suggested data categorization ever since the World Health Assembly Resolution 65.20 mandated the WHO to monitor such attacks.
SecuraXis supports organisations in their duty of care by providing supervision and monitoring technology that helps to mitigate risk during staff travel. Since 2017, Insecurity Insight supports SexuraXis with on demand security analyses for selected travel destinations.
The United Nations Institute for Disarmament Affairs (UNIDIR) works on arms control and disarmament with a view to contributing to conflict prevention and promote the development of a peaceful and prosperous world. Through its conventional arms programme, UNIDIR has addressed explosive weapons use in populated areas (EWIPA) and urban violence. Since 2010, Christina has been supporting UNIDIR’s work in this field through various studies on reverberating effects of explosive weapons on the SDGs and suggested methodologies to measure them.
