Luis Capelo is a Master in Public Policy candidate at the Harvard Kennedy School of Government, where he focuses on the very interesting intersections between technology, information and humanitarian affairs. By the end of the next two years he plans to be working with great humanitarian actors in developing technology-based solutions for humanity's most demanding armed conflicts and crisis situations. Prior to joining the Kennedy School, Luis was working with a non-violence think-tank in Brazil, and has lived in Argentina, Cuba, Spain and Palestine in order to finish his undergraduate degree in Political Science. Luis is absolutely passionate about Ibero American literature, and feeds a long-time dream of writing a political novel.
Update on Final Project | CivicMaps Toolkit
ZPP is well known by the “ZPP Monthly Monitor”, a monthly report that powerfully displays all the human rights abuses recorded by the 420 community-based peace monitors in a color coded map of Zimbabwe. ZPP uses the violations map to demonstrate how the different electoral constituencies of Zimbabwe are populated by human rights abuses. Choosing the all-too-intuitive green-to-red heatmap methodology, ZPP displays the information they collect on a map that is both easy to read and compelling.
