Build Peace 2018
October 29, 2018 - October 31, 2018
Build Peace is annual conference that brings together practitioners, activists, academics, policy makers, artists and technologists from around the world to share experience and ideas on using technology, arts and other innovations for peacebuilding and conflict transformation.
Build Peace 2018 will explore how technological innovation and creativity re-shape the economic opportunities, economic organisation, and economic power that impact how we live together in peace – in the Global North and the Global South alike. Apply now to speak or facilitate a workshop (deadline June 30) or register to attend.
In many contexts, building peace requires addressing the role of economics in conflict. To build peace, we must also re-imagine the economic organisation and economic powers that affect how we live together. Creative and digital economies can provide alternative economic models that tackle inequality, reduce social exclusion, and make communities more resilient to conflict. At the same time, creative and digital economies can create or deepen conflict, altering or reinforcing the balance of power in ways that damage efforts towards reconciliation and social cohesion.
