#HackingConflict is a #DiploHack challenge that explores how youth and technology can disrupt conflict and empower nonviolent activism amidst the maelstrom of war.
How the event works
On 27-28 May 2015, six multi-disciplinary teams competed against the clock to define innovative ideas on how social media, big data and other disruptive technologies can be leveraged to hack through the fog of war and make a difference!
