Technology: Progress and Potential

Screen Shot 2014-09-18 at 6.36.11 AM

An article I wrote for Alliance for Peacebuilding’s Building Peace magazine is now up on the web. In it, I look at both the significant progress around technologies to share vital information before and during a conflict or disaster, and also how much more needs to be done in this regard.

I end by asking,

The progress, potential, and new challenges of technology provoke a simple question of us: we all often say technology saves lives, but how far and much are we willing to really invest to make sure it really does?

Read the article here.

Also worth reading is ‘Technology and the Moral Imagination in Local Peacebuilding‘ by Helena Puig Larrauri.

    It’s a project on communications for peace in Sudan by a Sudanese NGO (SUDIA) that I’ve been working with for a few years. They do great work.
