Peace by other means: the role of digital platforms in the war

The conflict in Ukraine represents the first conventional war in which disruptive technologies and digital platforms play a key role. In a series of online talks, the Global Peace Tech Hub discusses the different ways in which digital technologies and technology platforms can contribute to the promotion of peace and build new bridges between citizens in Europe and the world. This first session approaches the topic from the perspective of information warfare, strategies against disinformation and the use of digital platforms to fight war and build peace.
