Re-thinking conflict early warning | Let them talk

And yet, almost always, when you ask community-level peacebuilders what information would help them do their jobs better they say they would like to understand how people chose to enter into violence.  This is not just because understanding how choices are changing can help predict conflict, but also because this understanding is  a much better guide to action. It’s not just a warning, it’s also a recommendation for how to respond. The information needs of peacebuilders that manage national or local networks are somewhat different. In my experience, they are more interested in real-time data on what conflicts are unfolding, so they can either monitor the work of their network or react to emergency situations.
