The Mapping Militants Project identifies patterns in the evolution of militant organizations in specified conflict theatres and provides representations of changing relationships among groups. Relationships are traced in interactive timeline-diagrams or “maps,” which provide visual representations of how inter-group relationships such as rivalries and alliances change over time. The maps are linked to group profiles, which compile open-source news and data on militant organizations to provide a comprehensive, fully cited report on each group. Click on the name of a map on the list below to display a list of profiles associated with that map. Click on the name of the profile for the full report. Scroll down further to the Maps section to link to the interactive visual “maps” or diagrams of inter-group relationships.
