The Global PeaceTech Hub team and students from the Master in Transnational Governance at the EUI School of Transnational Governance have collaborated to create an interactive map that aims to provide a comprehensive understanding of the projects, initiatives, and organizations working at the intersection of peace and technology.
The map includes only active initiatives or those whose status could not be verified. At the end of the first phase of work in October 2022, 172 initiatives had been mapped. The initial database for the map includes categories such as the title of the initiative, the name and type of organization, region, headquarters location, peace technologies used, and the initiative’s focus on short-term or long-term peace.
The research for this project was led by Lucía Bosoer and supported by Tariq Azeez, Tomiris Amirova, and Xiaoman Lin. The tool was developed by Michele Giovanardi in collaboration with Teona Nesovic. This is an ongoing project, and we envision it as a collaborative tool for the Global PeaceTech community. Community members can easily submit their own initiatives by clicking on the plus button on the map and completing the required fields. The submissions will be then revised and approved by the Global PeaceTech Hub team.
You can access the map at the following link: https://www.globalpeacetech.org/gptmap/
The data represented on the map is also available in excel format. The excel file is periodically updated and uploaded on this website. Download the data in excel format here.

The map was presented by Lucía Bosoer and Michele Giovanardi at the Global PeaceTech Conference in Florence in November 2022:
