2018 – Applying Data for Peacekeeping

Peacekeeping relies on structural, actionable and timely information to be effective. The challenges lie in collecting and collating relevant information, applying information for effective actions and measuring performance. The conference brought together researchers and data specialists, peacekeeping staff and policy makers.

On November 14-15, 2018, the Protection of Civilians department of PAX organized the conference ”Applying Data for Peacekeeping” in the Hague. The aim was to link innovations in data collection and analysis with the need for structural information for peacekeepers to improve peacekeeping in practice. The conference aimed to contribute to solutions by addressing the various types of data (e.g. need assessments, remote sensing, open source, big data) and their application through tools (e.g. threat analysis, data management systems, surveys etc.) for peacekeeping operations.
