Peace Engineering: How Technology Can Prevent Conflict and Spur Peacebuilding


As our human predicament at the beginning of the 21st Century is on a knife-edge, we need to have a better understanding of how engineering and the use of fast-changing technologies could serve social, political, and economic progress rather than fragmentation, division and destruction.

We invite you to join us for this special event: Peace Engineering: How Technology Can Prevent Conflict and Spur Peacebuilding. The event is hosted by George Mason University’s Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter School for Peace and Conflict Resolution. The school's dean, Alpaslan Özerdem, will lead the discussion using examples such as the reconstructed Mostar Bridge in Bosnia-Herzegovina. This event is free.
