Ethics & Human Rights

JustPeace Labs’ Ethics & Human Rights program aims to advance peace and human rights protections through responsible and ethical technology. We engage in advocacy, awareness raising and coalition-building. Our tools and strategy services provide guidance on grounding technology projects in targeted and measurable ethical frameworks. Our work focuses in particular on technology in high-risk or post-conflict settings.
