Join Harris Public Policy and Rotary International for the second in a three-part series on discussions around peace and conflict.

The era of big data is changing the way we live and make decisions. It is reshaping the way our economies work, and transforming the relationship between citizens and governments. But what does a ‘data-driven approach’ mean for conflict resolution and peacebuilding? Can it alter the way we look at political violence? And how can we use the newest techniques for collecting and analyzing huge bodies of data to enhance our humanitarian aid efforts in conflict settings?

Please join us for War and Peace in the Age of Big Data, and see rapid data visualization techniques in real time. Hear from experts on the opportunities and difficulties in using big data to shape the future of peace and conflict. The event is the second of a three-part series on issues of peace and conflict, Pathways to Peace.
