We’re pleased to announce our first #peacehack of 2017.

The Conflict Resolution Working Group (part of the School of International Public Affairs) at Columbia University will be holding a #peacehack on March 26th 2017 whose objective is to contribute to the field of conflict resolution and peacebuilding using new technologies/media and data analysis.

The #peacehack will bring together teams of those interested in conflict resolution and peacebuilding, and those knowledgeable on data analysis or programming skills. Each team will have ten hours to provide with a technological/innovative solution to a challenge posed by one of our partnering organizations.

At the end of the day a jury will pick the winner team that will receive a 500$ prize.

Furthermore, all teams will be able to further develop their project in partnership with the organizations that proposed their challenge.
