Sanjana Hattotuwa, Special Advisor to the ICT4Peace Foundation, will participate in the 9th Forum on New Technologies of Information & Communication applied to Conflict, from 2 − 3 June 2010 in Buenos Aires. Sanjana will present on the following:

Technology for peacebuilding: The present and the future
This presentation will explore how new media and new technologies are helping redefine the theory and practice of peacebuilding. From the Iranian ‘Twitter revolution’ to post-election Kenyan crowd-sourcing and earthquake victim perspectives via mobiles in Haiti, the same ICTs used for repression, censorship and control are used to strengthen democracy, liberty and freedom. The presentation will explore these issues and events and extrapolate ideas for the application of ICTs in peacebuilding in the future.
