feature story - Introducing: The Sentry

july 20th, 2015

Today, Not On Our Watch with its partner The Enough Project announce the launch of The Sentry, an initiative co-founded by board members George Clooney and John Prendergast that seeks to dismantle the networks of perpetrators, facilitators, and enablers who fund and profit from Africa’s deadliest conflicts. With The Sentry, Not On Our Watch hopes to lend greater support to broader accountability measures as well as provide leverage to peace efforts aimed at ending Africa’s deadliest conflicts.

Watch The Sentry’s launch video and share it on Twitter.

Using open source data collection, field research, and state-of-the-art network analysis technology, The Sentry will produce evidence-based analysis and focus on how these conflicts are financed, sustained, and monetized. The investigations will aim to engage civil society and media, support regulatory action and prosecutions, and provide policymakers with the information they require to take effective action.

Please visit The Sentry website to learn more and read the first four country briefs on:

South Sudan
The Central African Republic
The Democratic Republic of the Congo

Tips or information to share in support of The Sentry's investigations can be anonymously submitted here.

Co-founded by George Clooney and John Prendergast, The Sentry is an initiative of Not On Our Watch, in partnership with The Enough Project and C4ADS.
