Exploring how innovative uses of media, technology, and direct engagement can accelerate positive social change, counter radicalization and build peace.
“A technique to rapidly immerse a group or team into a situation for problem solving or idea creation ... often used for brainstorming product or process development.”
RNW Media and the PeaceTech Lab are partners in organizing the deep dive series. The deep dives aim to discern how innovative uses of media, data, and technology in fragile and failed states can accelerate positive change and build peace. Unlike traditional government and think tank deep dives, the Deep Dives engage not just researchers and analysts but also fellow NGO practitioners, CSO representatives, technologists, funders, and donors. Together they probe a given country or problem set, delving into case studies, operational challenges, and best practices to explore tangible, practical action steps. For this program on Syria, we are pleased to have the collaboration of IREX.
