Understanding and Visualising the ‘Transnational Everyday’ in the Horn of Africa

This is an interactive report on how individuals move and interact across borders and transnationally. The report summarises the outcomes of these discussions and practically showcases a range of data tools and approaches that have potential for application across X-Border projects.

In November 2019, the Rift Valley Institute and OSSREA held a workshop in Addis Ababa bringing together around 20 researchers and data visualisation experts from the region and beyond. The purpose was to inform the development of the transnational everyday workstream, part of the DFID-funded X-Border Local Research Network project being implemented by RVI, The Asia Foundation and the Carnegie Middle East Centre. This workstream seeks to better understand and describe the transnational flows that emerge out of conflict, taking Somali and South Sudanese populations as its starting point. Specific objectives for the workshop included:

  • Helping the researchers understand different and innovative ways of presenting and visualising their data;
  • Supporting the development of new research ideas and helping shape an overall research agenda;
  • Enabling cross-fertilisation between different research activities in the Horn of Africa and beyond;
  • Creating a network that could continue to share ideas on data collection and visualisation. The workshop was held over four days.
