About PeaceTech Lab

PeaceTech Lab reduces violent conflict using technology, media, and data to accelerate and scale peacebuilding efforts. An independent non-profit organization, the Lab brings together social scientists, data experts, business leaders, activists, and more to develop effective peacebuilding solutions.

“We can see very clearly: technology can be used just as effectively to promote peacebuilding as it has been used by others to promote hatred.”  – Sheldon Himelfarb.

Research around issues like social media and hate speech serve to inform policymakers, data scientists, activists, and business leaders while also providing a foundation for predictive analytics and a proprietary platform for early warning of violence.
