An overview of our projects

Editorial cartoonists have the ability to condense complex issues into a single image. An image that makes you think about the world around you. We work with international media, but also with universities, museums, NGOs and international bodies like the United Nations to produce cartoons on a range of issues, from climate change to human rights.

African Union Human Rights Memorial

2014 – African Union
Initiated by the African Union in a resolution dating back to 2004, the African Union Human Rights Memorial (AUHRM) is meant to become a memorial for remembering mass atrocities in Africa. 'AUHRM should manifest both the duty to remember, provide a place of recognition as well as mourning and the duty to overcome denial, silence and disregard.'

About Freedom

2013 – About Freedom
In a partnership with About Freedom, an international film festival taking place in the Netherlands, and Dutch newspaper BN de Stem, Cartoon Movement developed six different perspectives on freedom. The perspectives are based on personal stories send in by the readers of the newspaper.

Humanitarian charter and minimum standards in humanitarian response

2013 – The Sphere Project
The Sphere Project is an initiative that brings together many of the world’s largest and oldest humanitarian agencies with the aim to improve the quality and accountability of humanitarian assistance to people affected by disasters or conflicts. In this partnership, Cartoon Movement and the Sphere Project teamed up to spread even further the awareness of the Humanitarian Charter and the Handbook amongst humanitarian actors, using cartoons.

Justice and security in conflict-affected areas

2012 – London School of Economics and Political Science
Between 2011 and 2017, the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) engaged in a six-year research project on governance, security and justice in conflict-affected areas. We supported the academic research with editorial cartoons about security, conflict resolution, resources and transitional justice.

New vision of peace

2012 – World Peace Foundation
In this partnership, Cartoon Movement worked with the World Peace Foundation (part of Fletcher School of International Law and Diplomacy at Tufts University) to create a series of cartoons about peace in the 21st century, inspired by the visuals used by the international peace movement in the early 20th century.
