Open Situation Room Exchange revolutionize the ways in which local communities and peacebuilders tackle the drivers of violent conflict.
The rapid expansion of social media and mobile phones has transformed how people communicate and share information in areas affected by violent conflict. The data associated with these “digital footprints” can revolutionize the ways in which local communities and peacebuilders tackle the drivers of violent conflict.
To take advantage of this opportunity, PeaceTech Lab has created a data hub called the Open Situation Room Exchange (OSRx), designed to provide critical insights into economic, social, and political conditions on the ground in conflict zones globally. Researchers, policymakers, practitioners, donors, legal and health professionals can use the OSRx to:
- Develop deeper awareness of conflict zones through trusted data sharing relationships
- Support peacebuilders in finding, collecting, analyzing, visualizing and publishing conflict-related data
- Produce open datasets for peacebuilding programs to inform policy decisions to prevent violent conflict
