Event Description

The United States Institute of Peace will be webcasting an event live on June 24, 2010 from 9am to 1pm (EDT) entitled " Can You Help Me Now? Mobile Phones and Peacebuilding in Afghanistan."

This event will bring together experts on international peacebuilding and mobile phone technology to focus on the use of mobile phones in one of the most difficult conflict environments today: Afghanistan. Panelists will include innovators from NGOs (US and European) like Ushahidi, FrontlineSMS, and Mobile Active, as well as the DoD, UN personnel, and Roshan.

The online audience will be able to engage panelists through a live chat and Twitter discussion (hashtag: #usipmobile). We encourage you to take part! Find full details here:
