ECRIS is the acronym for Enquête Collective Rapide d'ldentification des conflits et des groupes Stratégiques. As a methodological framework for the comparative analysis of several sites, ECRIS involves six phases: (1) individual inquiry at each site, (2) a preparatory seminar, (3) the collective inquiry, (4) a collective evaluation seminar, (5) individual research at each site, and (6) a final seminar. The ECRIS procedure has been field-tested in five locations: in Senegal, twice in Benin, in the Central African Republic, and in Niger.
