About ViEWS

The Violence Early-Warning System (ViEWS) is a publicly available, data-driven forecasting system. It generates monthly predictions of the number of fatalities in impending state-based conflict 1-36 months ahead, as well as probabilistic assessments of the likelihood that given conflict thresholds will be met – for each country and 55x55 km location in Africa and the Middle East. 

ViEWS is directed by Håvard Hegre and based at the Department of Peace and Conflict Research at Uppsala University and Peace Research Institute Oslo.
