Podcast: PeaceTech and Data Collection for Rule of Law


This is an installment of a special Peace Frequency series on rule of law in practice, produced jointly by the International Network to Promote the Rule of Law (INPROL) and the U.S. Institute of Peace’s Global Campus. Each episode in this series offers a snapshot of a priority reform issue or insights on key skills for rule of law promotion in conflict-affected environments. In this podcast INPROL Director Lelia Mooney and Senior Program Assistant Chelsea Dreher discuss data collection technologies with Derek Caelin, Senior Specialist for Peace Tech Lab.

Derek works on the Lab’s PeaceTech Exchange program, an initiative to connect peacebuilders in conflict zones to media, technology, and data for them help them achieve their objectives. Working with local partners, Derek and the PeaceTech Exchange team have put on workshops in countries like Iraq, Afghanistan, and Pakistan to address issues such as Transparency & Accountability, Countering Violent Extremism and Gender Based Violence.
