IPIS uses Gephi, an interactive network visualisation tool, to map and visualize power dynamics in and post-conflict areas. The graph can be used to describe local, provincial, national, regional and international peace builders and spoilers and the relationships between these actors. The workshop presented how to use Gephi to create a power mapping visualisation that can help non-governmental and governmental actors understanding the underlying dynamics of a conflict or post-conflict situation.
