Peace Engineering: How Technology Can Prevent Conflict and Spur Peacebuilding

April 22 @ 2:00pm - 3:00pm

Free

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.

Discover more about this cutting-edge area of research and application, and put forward your questions to our roundtable panel which includes:

Lual Mayen, Founder and CEO, Junub Games

Sheldon Himelfarb, President and CEO of PeachTech Lab, United States Institute of Peace

Dr. Mira Olson, Drexel University

Dr. Ramesh Sepehrrad, Center for Security Innovation & S&B Strategies

Professor Sara Cobb, Carter School for Peace and Conflict Resolution
