This guide offers an overview of e-analytics in the context of peacemaking and preventive diplomacy. It presents a summary of e-analytics tools as well as examples from the peace and security field. It includes a data project planning matrix that aims to help facilitate and motivate data-driven analysis. Part of the guide is a glossary on basic terminology related to new technologies.
The guide is rooted in the e-analytics course that the Department of Political and Peacebuilding Affairs has been conducting jointly with UN Global Pulse and a range of other partners since 2017.
