Crisis Index Analyst

The OWP’s Crisis Index

The Crisis Index is designed as a central source of information for ongoing crises across the globe. It provides an overview of various crises, the key actors involved in them, their effect, and a timeline of events pertaining to the crises and their development. The index offers readers an easy way to expand their understanding of existing crises, as well as outlining the key problems that lead to crises.

The Crisis Index is continually being developed and updated, which is why we are always looking for new people with expert knowledge of crises to assist us in improving this vital source of information.
