Welcome To PeaceTech, The Movement To Use Technology To End Violent Conflict And Extremism
Peacetech projects often tackle the typical drivers of conflict: inter-ethnic and inter-religious tensions, gender violence, and land disputes. "Most conflict today is about these local drivers," says Himelfarb. It's a matter of minority rights, corruption, authoritarian regimes. It's (addressing) these drivers which allow you to have a lasting peace and not lapse back into violence again." If those drivers are addressed earlier in a brewing conflict, there is also a better chance of avoiding all out war, and the associated casualties.
