The university’s Human Security Report Project (HSRP) has launched its first issue of the Pakistan Conflict Monitor, which is accessible free of charge at www.pakistanconflictmonitor.org and available by e-mail or RSS.

The publication provides daily updates on the incidence of political violence in Pakistan along with analysis of its causes and impacts on the wider region. It also covers related issues such as health, development, displacement, human rights, governance, peacemaking and transitional justice.

It’s modeled after the project’s highly successful Afghanistan Conflict Monitor (www.afghanconflictmonitor.org).

HSRP director Andrew Mack expects the Pakistan publication will become an equally trusted "one-stop-shop" for busy policy, research and media professionals who need to stay abreast of the issues.

"Our readers value the context we provide for news stories, the provision of different perspectives and the access we provide to background research and data," says Mack.

The Human Security Report Project is an independently funded research centre at SFU’s School for International Studies. It is one of the world’s most trusted and influential sources of information on global and regional political violence trends, causes and consequences, serving the international policy and research communities, the media, educators and the interested public.
