Project Code: STATE-USA-CSO-31
|Project Title||Monitoring and Analyzing Conflict Narratives in Social Media|
|Project Summary||Study the effect of story maps and other conflict analysis products on social media narratives.|
|Agency||Department of State|
|Number of Interns||1|
CSO’s Instability Monitoring and Analysis Platform creates products depicting insights and information on conflict trends and political instability, some of which are published online and promoted through social media. These products are often shared tens of thousands of times, but it is unclear how they affect the narrative surrounding the issue, and whether they reach target audiences and decisionmakers.
To track the effect of these products, CSO is seeking a creative and self-motivated social media researcher to collect and evaluate quantitative and qualitative responses on Twitter, Facebook, and other platforms. The researcher will work with CSO to determine the most critical questions to be addressed, such as the product’s reach, tone and depth of commentary, as well as comparison to similar products.
