In all spheres of life, we witness an ever-increasing use of innovative technologies, digital tools, and online spaces. These developments increasingly impact on conflict dynamics. They often exacerbate existing divisions in society and intensify violence. But they also offer new and exciting ways to address violent conflict, shift the power to more locally owned peacebuilding agendas, and allow practitioners to scale interventions even when resources are scare and spaces for meaningful peace work are shrinking.

This training focuses on the immense potential that emerging technologies and digitalisation bring to the peacebuilding and conflict transformation field. Learning from concrete examples from all around the world, participants will explore the added value of embracing emerging technologies and digitalisation throughout the project cycle. Open-source early warning applications, drone-supported mapping processes of recourse conflicts, and virtual and interactive memory spaces are just some of the interventions that participants will get to know and learn from.


By the end of the seven weeks online course participants will…

...have a sound understanding why emerging technologies and digitalisation are essential components of any conflict transformation and peacebuilding approach in the early 21st century.
...have explored the potential digital peacebuilding concepts offer in an environment of online misinformation, limited resources, and shrinking spaces for constructive civil society engagement.
...have been introduced to concrete examples of how innovative technologies and digital tools have been used by peacebuilding practitioners, identifies their strengths and weaknesses, and assessed their relevance and adequacy for various conflict contexts.
…have shared their experiences within the group and engaged in peer/comparative learning processes.
...have explored first steps to move conflict transformation and peacebuilding online and know about free/cost-effective resources that can help them to get started.
