TECHNOLOGY TOOLS FOR PEACE BUILDING


The Shaikh Group: TECHNOLOGY TOOLS FOR PEACEBUILDING


 

To revolutionize peace-building efforts in the MENA region,        TSG's "Technology Tools for Peacebuilding" project aims to increase the use of technology in peacebuilding mechanisms.

         

In support of this initiative, The Shaikh Group has formed a cross-industry peacebuilding group in the Bay Area, which convenes San Francisco technology and philanthropy leaders, and has been named the “San Francisco Peacebuilding League”. Its purpose, as agreed by its members, is to generate new ideas and connections to positively contribute to successful peacebuilding and conflict resolution outcomes around the world, inter alia by supporting the use of innovative technologies.

The league is convening on a regular basis and has set up a leadership team, which takes a lead role in facilitating connections and managing different working groups.
