Monitor the Crisis


The Iraq Security and Humanitarian Monitor (ISHM) is released each Thursday and tracks the latest security and political developments in Iraq through a humanitarian lens, offering insights unmatched by other publications. EPIC collects information from inside Iraq and makes it available to policymakers, aid workers, journalists, and scholars. Our goal is to further the collective understanding of the ongoing conflict and humanitarian crisis in Iraq.

Every week, EPIC publishes the Ninewa Security Bulletin, a newsletter that covers and maps the latest security developments in Ninewa. Once a month, EPIC also publishes the Ninewa Security and Humanitarian Monitor. Going beyond security dynamics, this monthly report also tracks the latest political, humanitarian and reconstruction developments in Ninewa. EPIC has developed a network of community monitors to collects information from inside Ninewa and makes it available to stakeholder communities, policymakers, aid workers, journalists, and scholars. Both products are provided as part of our work with Safe Return.
