Monitor February 2023

Atrocities Watch Africa (AWA) is a non-partisan, civil society organisation that intends to provide continental leadership in matters pertaining to the prevention of mass atrocities within Africa, our strategies and approaches are grounded in the realisation that atrocities can be prevented through various interventions, including, but not limited to, early warning mechanisms, diplomatic efforts, use of social media and new technologies, litigation, and advocacy campaigns.

This newsletter builds on our team’s continuous monitoring of the region that allows us to identify deteriorating situations where atrocities may be committed as well as track ongoing situations of ongoing atrocities to detect increasing tendencies or opportunities for improvement.

We were watching Burkina Faso, Cameroon, the Central African Republic, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Ethiopia, Libya, Mali, Mozambique, Nigeria, Somalia, South Sudan and Sudan. The monthly newsletters cover countries in which we believe significant changes have occurred and require us to pay close attention, the countries it covers are changing.

  • Burkina Faso
  • Democratic Republic of the Congo
  • Ethiopia
  • Nigeria
  • Somalia
  • South Sudan
