WHAT IS A CONFLICT SCAN ?
In the broader family of conflict analysis, there exist several methodologies and approaches to analyzing conflict. SFCG has a document explaining conflict analysis (also known as conflict assessment), which can be found here in SFCG’s resources. Conflict scans are one specific approach to conflict analysis. They are meant to inform programming by allowing us to comprehend the changing dynamics and evolution of a conflict or peace initiatives within short periods of time. This document is a guide to the conflict scan approach, which was developed by program and DM&E teams at SFCG to encourage learning and reflection with regards to the contexts in which we work. For more information on the sfcg approach to conflict analysis, please contact our ILT department.
