Hi everyone! I hope you are all doing well. I wanted to take a moment to share something I created in collaboration with The Everyday Peace Indicators Project (EPI). EPI creates everyday indicators of difficult-to-measure concepts such as peace, reconciliation, governance and violent extremism. The project is a cooperative, bottom-up endeavor. It takes, as a starting point, the belief that local communities are best placed to conduct research on their own communities because they understand their context best. The project operates via local NGOs; it sources the indicators from the communities themselves, and helps communities identify priorities, common goals, and learn from research findings about the indicators they identified. Take a look at the visuals and animation (my first ever!) below that I created to describe this approach to measuring difficult-to-measure concepts. As always, I welcome your thoughts and feedback. Thank you!
