Mapping Attacks on Journalists in Afghanistan
Nai is a non-governmental organization working in Afghanistan to help build and promote a strong independent media sector. As part of this project the Nai Media Watch Unit monitors the use of violence against journalists.
The Violence Against Journalists in Afghanistan 2001-2014 map visualizes incidents of violence as recorded in each of the Nai Media Watch Unit's annual reports. As well as showing the number of violent incidents in each Afghanistan province for each year since 2001 the map also includes a number of other heat-map layers. These layers allow you to visualize on the map the number of journalists in each province, the number of media outlets, security incidents and the relative safety of each province.
