Håvard Hegre from The Department of Peace and Conflict Research talks about data analysis and simulation in this project that started up in 2017
The ViEWS project started in January 2017 with funding from the ERC Advanced Grant scheme. It will develop, test, and iteratively improve a pilot Violence Early-Warning System (ViEWS) that is rigorous, data-based, and publicly available to researchers and the international community. The project is directed by professor Håvard Hegre.
