The Tech for Peace Advisory Group

The Tech for Peace Initiative is a cross sectoral initiative, and by engaging highly motivated members representing big tech, the Norwegian IT sector, academia, media and law, we are forming a strong alliance to counteract the global issue of increased hate speech and polarisation online in the countries where Norwegian Church Aid have peace building activities.

Together we will:

  • Increase the number of “digital peace” projects and activities in the countrieswhere NCA has peace building activities.
  • Expand and diversify the peace building toolbox to fit the digital space
  • Create awareness and advocate for change on the topic of disinformation, hate speech and polarisation online.


The working group consists of Norwegian Church Aid and our partner Semcon. You can read more about our partnership here.  And by drawing on the competence, experience, and networks of the Tech for Peace Advisory Group, we are very excited to have started this two-year journey together.
