16 April 2019

The Regional Office for Southern Africa (ROSA) of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) organised a full day workshop held in Johannesburg on the 16th of April 2019. The workshop brought together civil society actors, UN and AU colleagues, as well as think tanks/academia from Southern African to share knowledge and experiences and lessons learned about early warning and prevention work in the region. The aim was to share experiences and to build a stronger network amongst actors and find ways to support initiatives and collaborations. Silindile Mlilo of Xenowatch, shared with participants the work of the project and reflected on how data collected through the Xenowatch platform is used for early warning and prevention of xenophobic violence. She informed the audience that Xenowatch provides information and analysis that can inform conflict prevention and response mechanisms by government, civil society and international organisations.
