    Peacekeeping relies on structural, actionable and timely information to be effective. The challenges lie in collecting and collating relevant information, applying information for effective actions and measuring performance. This two-day conference, which took place on 14 and 15 November in The Hague, brought together peacekeepers from UNMISS and MINUSMA, policy makers and experts from UN HQ and the Dutch Ministries of Foreign Affairs and Defense, and researchers from CIVIC, Bellingcat, Airwars, Every Casualty, SIPRI, and ETH Zurich, among others, to discuss current challenges to the application of data for peacekeeping. The aim was to link innovations in data collection and analysis with the need for structural information for peacekeepers to improve peacekeeping in practice. The event was organized by the Protection of Civilians (PoC) department of PAX as part of its Strategic Partnership with the Netherlands Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
