New Tool for Threat-Downs

Now here is something very interesting.

I am always intrigued to see what counts as a "global incident." The threats here seem primarily threats to the state. I'd like to see one with some generic human security measures - areas of low-level repression, civil wars, massacres, disappearances. It would be fascinating, for example, to have someone tracking the intensity of the violence in Kenya using such a tool.

The authors are developing similar maps for things like pandemic outbreaks and "USA school incidents." Hmm.
