PeaceTech Lab publishes a weekly roundup of news related to peacebuilding and technology.   If you are interested in subscribing directly from PeaceTech go here.

The current edition includes an article from The Atlantic questioning the use of VR (virtual reality) to increase empathy for refugees.  Because of my work with the Forage Center where we offer a simulation for graduate students that immerses them in a conflict working with refugees, ways to increase understanding of the plight of refugees interests me.  Other news items include looking at how mobile technology is saving Africans from humanitarian disasters and looking at the work of Peace Direct.
