Sifting Fact from Fiction: The Role of Social Media in Conflict
Live webcast from the US Institute of Peace:
This Blogs & Bullets meeting will bring together the companies that sift through and sell this data with the activists that create it and the policy-makers who use it. We will look at the cutting-edge of technologies for analysis with experts from around the world in an effort to expand our ability to harness these new platforms for conflict management and peacebuilding. The event will be webcast live beginning at 9:00am EDT on September 16, 2011.
