We are International Alert

We provide conflict data and analysis through our interoperable tools that work together, creating more robust and insightful reports on conflict-stricken areas. This data may also easily integrate with any format, platform, or mapping model of government agencies, universities, media outlets, and other stakeholders.

Our goal is to make conflict data available, understandable, and actionable to aid in research, policy making, development strategies, and peacebuilding.
