Conflict and Stabilization Monitoring Framework for Ninewa
Social Inquiry developed a set of indicators, in coordination with the United States Institute for Peace and Sanad for Peacebuilding, to monitor conflict and stabilization across four, inter-linked vectors: safe and secure environment, political moderation and stable governance, rule of law, and social wellbeing and livelihoods. These indicators were specifically designed for ethno-religiously diverse communities and are currently being piloted over three rounds within specific districts and subdistricts of northern Ninewa Governorate (including Hamdaniya, Rabbia, Sinjar, Tel Kaif, Wana, and Zummar). The focus of data collection is among the predominant identity-groups residing in these areas (or displaced from them). Data and analysis here serves as an evidence-base to understand and track inter- and intra-group dynamics, as they evolve over time due to changes in context as well as interventions by civil society and local authorities aimed at co-existence and reconciliation.
The first round of data collection took place in February 2018, the second round in August 2018, and the third is scheduled for March 2019. Initial findings from selected locations from the first round are summarized in the presentations below.
