How to use CrisisWatch

CrisisWatch is our global conflict tracker, a tool designed to help decision-makers prevent deadly violence by keeping them up-to-date with developments in over 70 conflicts and crises, identifying trends and alerting them to risks of escalation and opportunities to advance peace. Entries dating back to 2003 provide easily searchable conflict histories.

  • Global Overview – Read the monthly Global Overview to find out which situations have deteriorated or improved in the past month and where, in the month to come, there is a risk of escalation or an opportunity to advance conflict resolution.
  • Interactive Map – Use the interactive map to navigate quickly to the conflict situation you follow.
  • Entries – Read individual entries for short, sharp summaries of the month’s most significant political and security developments in over 70 countries, and links to Crisis Group’s in-depth analysis published that month.
  • Personalised selection – Create your own CrisisWatch briefing by filtering all entries in our database dating back to 2003. Use this unique resource to check your facts, prepare for a trip by downloading recent entries on a conflict situation or region, or view conflict trajectories over time.
  • On the move – Read CrisisWatch and use the map on your desktop, tablet or smartphone.
  • Subscribe to receive monthly email alerts as soon as we have updated the entries and published a new Global Overview.
