The use of technology in the field of peacebuilding is on the rise, as novel approaches to fostering and promoting peace are needed to tackle persistent conflict. The Eurasia Foundation and the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace are pleased to host a Google Hangout to explore how innovators are employing technology to bridge divided communities in Eurasia and the Middle East. The panelists will discuss the role of technology in conflict resolution and reconciliation, and technology’s potential to open alternative paths to peace for increasingly intractable conflicts across the world.

Submit your questions to @CarnegieEndow on Twitter using the hashtag #Tech4Peace before the Google Hangout or participate with us live on Friday.
