Women are vital to building peace. However, little research has focused on women’s use of technology to organize for peace. In light of the global COVID-19 crisis when more organizing is having to take place through technology, it is even more important to understand the potentials as well as constraints of digital tools for women’s peacebuilding efforts.
As a woman peacebuilder, you are invited to have a voice in an important process of identifying opportunities and limitations associated with women’s digital peacebuilding work by participating in an online interview with a researcher. Through participation in this study, you have the opportunity to contribute to the creation of various learning materials (such as toolkits or learning modules) for members of networks like World Pulse to use to understand how to best use technology to build peace.
Participation in this study is voluntary, and efforts will be made to ensure your confidentiality. We can complete the interview virtually, by email, Skype, Whatsapp, Google Hangout, or another online platform, depending on which is most comfortable and available to you. When a draft of this research is complete, you will also be invited to review it and offer any feedback. You will also receive copies of any reports and/or learning materials produced from this project.

This project is approved by World Pulse, though your participation will remain confidential. If you have any additional questions or concerns, you may also contact Corine Milano at [email protected].
