Feasibility Study: Analyzing Large-scale News Media Content for Early Warning of Conflict

SDG: 09 - Industry, Innovation & Infrastructure16 - Peace, Justice & Strong Institutions17 - Partnerships for the Goals

This feasibility study explored how data mining of largescale online news data could complement existing tools and information for conflict analysis and early warning. Taking Tunisia as a test case, analyzing news media archives from the period immediately prior to and following the January 2011 government transition, the study showed how tracking changes in tone and sentiment of news articles over time could offer insights about emerging conflicts. This project was done in collaboration with UNDP.
