Conflict timeline – Activity

Group exercise to reveal how conflict affects feelings of safety and security over time

2018 Available in English and French

Recording how conflict has changed over time is called a conflict timeline. While the timeline itself is useful, the real value lies in the discussion had in developing it. Thinking about how conflict has changed over time helps us to see and understand what has changed, the issues and events that have driven the change, and also the signs that change may happen again. The discussion will help you to understand:

  • any events that have influenced the way that people think about their safety and security
  • what is most important to people about their safety and security
  • the events or issues that make the security situation better or worse
  • the signs that suggest that the situation is improving or worsening
