ICCM 2013 Panel: Crisis Mapping for Conflict Management

Panelists: Theo Dolan [USIP]: Moderator, Helena Puig Larrauri [Build Peace], Rachel Brown [Sisi Ni Amani] & Peter Mwamachi [Kenya’s Steering Committee - Peacebuilding & Conf Mgmt].

Hosted by USIP, this panel brought together practitioners who are pushing the envelope on the uses of technology and mapping in conflict environments. Since the last discussion on this topic at ICCM 2010 in Boston, the scope of technology-based peacebuilding interventions have expanded considerably. What challenges are technology-enabled peacebuilders facing in the field? What lessons have they learned? And what opportunities are we missing as a community of practice in harnessing technology tools to preempt and prevent violence? This session has been developed in collaboration with the United States Institute of Peace’s PeaceTech Initiative.
