It is a well-known that the internet has become a theatre of conflict. Thus, social media are used to stir up resentment and, in some cases, even hate. As the situation around the Rohinga minority has shown, violent internet presence can easily go hand-in-hand with military atrocities against civilians, violent oppression, and genocidal politics.
What is less known is the fact that the internet has also become a theatre of mediation between conflicting parties and programmes of inter-communal reconciliation and peace building.
Hosted by Barb Iverson the 3rd Digital Debate will discuss how to transform cyber conflicts into opportunities to engage in cyber mediation, inter-communal reconciliation, and peace building. Academics and practioners will showcase a wide range of experiences.
