Interactive Platform - A drama of GERD negotiations, explore the debates at the UN Security Council around the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam
We are proud to kick off a new interactive platform exploring the debates at the United Nations Security Council around the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam (GERD).
The objective is to shed a different light on a well-studied hotspot for hydropolitical tensions, the Nile River. The project develops around the building of "controversy mapping", a tool that contributes to unpacking the complexity of public disputes. Obviously, the drama of the GERD entails a great number of explanatory variables that intervene at multiple levels and scales. Here, the focus is on a specific process linked to the two UN Security Council meetings that focused on the GERD topic, under the theme “Peace and Security in Africa” (on 29 June 2020 and 8 July 2021).
Navigate the website content through different lenses like “controversy mapping”, “conversations”, quotes explorer” and “data visualizations”.
