Mapping the 'Blind Spots'
What are maps for? How are they produced?
CartONG and Planète Réfugiés-Droits de l’Homme (PRDH) united since September 2019 to create maps aimed at raising awareness about the situation of people on death row worldwide. Nine maps have been produced to date. On March 8th, on the occasion of the International Women’s Day, the two organisations released a map detailing female death row prisoners around the world. The last two, showing death row inmates in Africa for 2018 and 2019, were shared on May 25th on the event of the Africa Day.We met Clémence Beugnot from CartONG.
To find out more about the PRDH project: read an interview with its Chairman Nordine Drici on this topic and the article ‘Detention conditions for inmates on death row: a lack of basic rights’.
Certain countries withhold information and do not share data on death sentences
CartONG is a non-governmental organization specialized in information management. Its vocation is to put data - in particular geographical data - at the service of humanitarian, development and social action projects. CartONG provides, thanks to its network of volunteers, support to local organizations or communities with limited resources.
