Data Visualization Site Examines Asia’s Subnational Conflicts

June 12, 2013

In conjunction with The Asia Foundation’s new study, “The Contested Corners of Asia: Subnational Conflict and International Development Assistance,”  a just-launched data visualization website provides further insight into one of the most pressing challenges in Asia today. “The Contested Corners of Asia: A Visual Companion,” gives users the opportunity to learn more about the history of subnational conflicts in Asia, to see how development indicators in subnational conflict regions compare with national totals, and how much international aid is going to these regions. Users can also explore responses to select survey questions from individuals living in subnational conflict regions in Aceh, Mindanao, and Southern Thailand. Downloadable copies of the full report and executive summary are also available on the site.
