PeaceTech Lab produces curriculum-based radio, television, and other multimedia content in collaboration with USIP to inspire changes in attitudes and behavior.
Since the outbreak of violence in the world's newest country in December 2013, South Sudanese have called attention to how hate speech has inflamed further violent conflict. To address this problem, PeaceTech Lab developed an approach for identifying and monitoring the use of hate speech and how it is connected to rising tensions and violence in the country. This includes a lexicon of hate speech terms, cutting-edge social media analysis, and in-country expertise.
Sawa Shabab (Together Youth) series is produced locally by Free Voice South Sudan in collaboration with USIP, to promote peace and stability by empowering youth to be confident, open-minded and participatory citizens in a diverse society.
