Event Details

About the Peace Innovation Lab
The Peace Innovation Lab is a new initiative from Stanford’s Persuasive Technology Lab. Launched in Spring 2010, the PI Lab is focused on on how technology is facilitating emerging and measurable social changes toward global peace.

What is Peace Innovation?
Peace Innovation is a new approach to conflict studies that focuses on real world interventions that leverage insights into technology and human interaction to reduce conflict and precursors to conflict.

How do we effect change?

We do research in collaboration, open innovation, social computing, persuasive technology & the potential of social networks to change society for the better. All of our research projects are in the field interventions that are data driven, effectively incubating peace startups using our access, resources and prestige as capital.
