"ICT4Peace is the belief, supported by a growing body of practitioners globally, that Information and Communications Technologies (ICTs) including mobile phones help in all aspects of peacekeeping and peacebuilding. Much is made of ICTs exacerbating violent conflict and war, including the increasing threat of cyberwar, hate speech online and use of mobile communications for acts of terrorism. However, the practice and theory of ICT4Peace respectively confirms and suggests that these same technologies, as well as alternatives, can be leveraged to strengthen human dignity and peace."

Daniel Stauffacher, the Chairman of the ICT4Peace Foundation, was asked by the Strategic Foresight Group to contribute an article explaining the raison d'etre of ICT4Peace, it's aims and current practice.
