• Identifying methods and digital tools for movement visualisation

• Representing movements and processes of protests

• Patterns, geometries, intensities of urban (counter) flows

 2. Narrating, recording and measuring conflict

• Proposing a vocabulary of visual models for political analysis

• Scales and indicators of conflict

• Sequences of conflict (de) - escalation

 3. Scientific and policy implications of protest mapping

• Politics of mapping and disciplining protest

• From contestation to conflict and back

• Protests and public space design

Workshop & Focus Group: Public Works Studio, Beirut, Lebanon

Mapping Urban Protest in Beirut Public Squares (2 - 3. 2. 2018)

RIS investigators, in collaboration with Public Works Studio, conducted a workshop to map and trace the 'Harak' protests during the summer of 2015. Through a series of two focus group discussions with 'new faces' protestors and organisers respectively, the participants reflected on their different experiences and views on following themes/issue:
• Socio-spatial practices in the Martyrs’ Square where the protests took place in 2015.
• Personal trajectories of protestors from their homes to the Square.
• Perceived turning points of actions and practices.
• Existing networks or established new ones amongst protestors.
• Moments of conflict as perceived and as experienced. 
• Media and representation.
