World Protest Platform

Client: Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung

Completed: 2015

In the summer of 2013, the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung (FES) and the Initiative for Policy Dialogue jointly funded research into the assumption that protests had increased worldwide since the financial crisis of 2007-2008. The goal was to generate global statistics on sustained episodes of protest, worldwide.

Using data produced by their research efforts, we partnered with FES to design and build the Global Platform on Participation and Protest, an interactive website where demands for meaningful political participation, economic justice, human rights, and the rights of groups, minorities and the environment can be documented, analyzed by people on the ground, as well as by academic researchers and journalists; it’s an online data-visualization tool for analysis and strategy-building that also holds the potential to link to other important public datasets.
