Guide to Outreach and Social Media Support for Peace and Development Organizations

Everyone wants their work to have a significant impact  – to influence individuals, academics, policies, governments, organizations, and communities. Given the resource constrained environment that peace and development work faces in the next few years, and the ability of information communication technology to foster new means of connecting, it is important to ensure we are using our resources as efficiently and effectively as possible.

The Curious Aid Worker: Storytelling with Marc Maxson (Part I)

Marc Maxson is not your usual aid worker.

Yes, he is a returned Peace Corps volunteer, lives in Kenya, works for a Washington D.C.-based non-governmental organization, and is married to someone also employed in aid.

But Marc Maxson also has a PhD in neuroscience.

So what does that enable Marc to do as an aid worker? Marc develops new conceptual approaches to solving "impossible" problems, of which there are many in international development.…

Exposing networks on Facebook: An example from the Caucasus

Recent events in the Middle East and North Africa have highlighted the potential use of online social networks for activism, but they have also added weight to personal and security concerns. In a recent interview with Radio Free Europe, for example, Evgeny Morozov even argues that internal security agencies might actually welcome the use of Facebook precisely because whole…

In praise of Twitter Diplomacy

At the beginning of last year, Transitions Online (TOL) published an article of mine as part of a small project documenting positive examples of ethnic Armenian-Azeri coexistence in Georgia.

Cyber Skeptics, Cyber Utopians, Bridge Bloggers, and Personal Security Concerns...

The argument between the cyber-skeptics and the cyber-utopians seems to be getting ever more intense of late, with the former seemingly being afforded the most exposure. Perhaps that's only fair given the amount of positive press given to the cyber-utopians over the years. However, that doesn't mean it's the absolute truth even if only natural thanks to many media reports which naively presented a brave new world of social justice and freedom ushered in by the advent of blogs, Twitter and…

Diversifying Information in Cross-Border Communication & Peace Building Initiatives

In my last post I touched upon the issue of language in cross-border projects intended to encourage and facilitate discussion and dialogue between Armenians and Azerbaijanis. However, even when taken into account, that doesn't mean that online platforms are going to be effective, especially when Internet penetration remains low in the region. Costs are coming down, of course,…

Another look at Diaspora: Aspects & Language

Yesterday I took a first look at Diaspora, a new open source social networking platform that some are already dubbing a "Facebook Killer." Plagued by many user concerns regarding privacy and the commercial direction the site is going in (which led, in my opinion, to an unnecessary and unaesthetic change to the…

Online Social Networking in Activism: A Quick Look at Diaspora

When Adnan Hajizade and Emin Milli, two video blogging youth activists in Azerbaijan, were detained on trumped up charges in Baku, the country's capital, supporters and friends naturally used Facebook to campaign for their release.

Social Media in Armenia-Azerbaijan Peacebuilding and Cross-border Communication

Since taking the first tentative steps to bring bloggers from Armenia and Azerbaijan together online in June 2008, it’s been both amazing and surprising to look back at how new media has managed to encourage and facilitate communication between the two countries. Locked into a bitter conflict over the disputed territory of Nagorno Karabakh, the online environment which exists today was…
