Targets: The joint research and policy innovation initiative of the Global PeaceTech Hub aims to contribute to several SDGs by mapping, assessing, analysing and recommending policy on different technologies for peace. This will help practitioners working on reducing different forms of violence, including hate speech and gender violence (16.1, 16.2); rethinking migration and refugee management and finical aid through the use of digital identities and blockchain technology (16.4, 16.5, 16.9); promoting the responsible use of data and AI towards transparency, accountability, and participation of citizens in peace and democratic processes (16.6, 16.7, 16.8, 16.10).
Presentation and panel discussion (online/hybrid)
The session will represent the first public launch of the ‘Global PeaceTech Atlas’ a global mapping of PeaceTech topics, initiatives, and case studies. Peace-oriented technologies are becoming an ecosystem, not only an academic discipline, consisting of NGOs, start-ups, and companies. The deployment of technology for peace entails legal, political, economic, and ethical dilemmas that transcend national borders and require new models of transnational governance. Our aim is to study these models, highlight existing practices, and propose concrete solutions to promote the responsible use of technologies such as Artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, blockchain, technical architectures for e-identity, and many more, in support of peace. The initiative is promoted by the Global PeaceTech Hub a platform that brings together academics, practitioners, and stakeholders from the public and private sector, to foster and accelerate policy reflection on the use and regulation of technology to enhance peace and cooperation at the transnational level.
The online session will take place on Zoom. Chat and raise-hand functions will be used throughout the session to facilitate participant interaction and engagement. Prezi Video, will be used as a tool for the interactive presentation of the Global PeaceTech Atlas. Further audience engagement will be promoted with live polls via Mentimeter.
