ICT4Peace: Beyond the hype

This is a presentation I gave today to students from the Southern Methodist University (SMU) on the invitation of Dan Rainey, the Director of the Office of Alternative Dispute Resolution Services (ADRS) for the National Mediation Board, and the agency’s Ombudsman.

The presentation covers aspects of my work using ICTs for citizen journalism and peacebuilding in Sri Lanka, as well as points to the manner in which mobiles, web and Internet tools and platforms are being used globally to support democracy, peace and human rights.

A similar presentation I made last year to Dan’s class at SMU can be viewed here.
