About JustPeace Labs

JustPeace Labs (JPL), a 501(c)(3) organization, advocates for and supports the responsible use and deployment of emerging technologies in high-risk settings—communities experiencing conflict, transitioning from conflict or enduring systematic human rights abuses.

What we believe in

Our Vision

Our work is grounded in the vision of a world where technology is used for good, and its unintended negative consequences are minimized. We believe that all organisations, whether private or public, that use or introduce tech in high-risk contexts have a responsibility to do so ethically and in a way that respects human rights.

We apply a multifaceted approach to realize our vision for responsible technology:

  1. Ethics guidance and leadership;
  2. Strategic support for responsible technology initiatives;
  3. Developing custom technological innovations.

Our work directly contributes to achieving SDG 16.

Advancing ethical, rights-aware technology.
