VJ Movement regularly works scientists and experts to co-create stories that are journalistic, evidence based and compelling at the same time. We have done this successfully with the London School of Economics, with the director of the World Peace Foundation, the African Union, the European Cultural Foundation, the VU University in Amsterdam and many others.
An example is the Comic about South Soudan: Who got What? It’s a produced in cooperation with the Justice and Security research Programme of the London School of Economics and political Science. Written by Alex de Waal, who many consider to be one of the world’s leading experts on South Sudan, and drawn by Victor Ndula, one of Africa’s leading comic artists as well as editorial cartoonist for the Nairobi Star. The 8-page comic explains how South Sudan was bankrupt and at war within just three years after independence.
