At the Enough Project, our policy and advocacy work has always been driven by the research we collect firsthand in the countries where we focus. As the lead editor and writer for Enough Said, I’m excited to bring our blog’s daily reporting even closer to the conflict zones we cover. Over the next two weeks, I’m making the transition from our Washington, D.C. office to Nairobi, Kenya, where I’ll be monitoring Sudan, Congo, the Lord’s Resistance Army, and increasingly, Somalia.
From my new vantage point, I’ll be more tuned in to the dynamics that unfold in the regional hub, and have the chance to report more frequently from the field alongside our researchers. We’ll also be working to boost our multimedia content on the blog. Through raw video, fresh photos, and audio clips, we’ll aim to give Enough Said readers a more intimate glimpse into the day-to-day observations and findings of members of the Enough team who live in the conflict zones or who travel there. We’ll also be looking for new guest contributors from the region – people who have their finger on the pulse as civil society leaders, survivors, conflict mediators, local researchers, and activists.
I’ll be back up to my regular posting schedule (with 5 Best Stories and such) the first week of September, this time with a dateline of Nairobi. In the meantime, I’d like to know: What you’d like to see us cover more on this blog? What are you especially interested to hear more about during the upcoming months?
As always, thanks for reading and commenting.
